Peggy Jelmini’s passion for art and painting was realized early in life when she was awarded with a scholarship to a regional art center as an elementary school student. This was the beginning of her career and her dedication to master the techniques of her chosen field later earned her a summa cum laude degree in art and the dean’s medal for scholarship upon graduation. Her fervor and enthusiasm to find perfection in her chosen field led her to seek and find criticism, instruction, encouragement and praise from some of the most respected names in art.
Peggy’s early professional career started as a critically recognized watercolorist capturing the flora and tranquil landscapes of California’s great Central Valley where she grew up and lives. Her search for expanded venues took her to the East Coast where she studied at the national Gallery of Art and belonged to the Potomac Valley and Virginia Watercolor societies. She has exhibited her work in galleries in Washington D.C., mid-Atlantic Seaboard and California and has won numerous national awards. Her ability to make the ordinary look exraordinary has won her praise from fellow professionals, designers and knowledgeable clients who have addd her paintings to their collections through the world.
