PEGGY WEISS / The Artist and Her Work

Before focusing exclusively on her artwork, Peggy Weiss and her husband made their mark in the culinary world in Austin, Texas. An avid photographer, she began her art career experimenting with digital collage, using old photos as source material. Today's technology allowed her to explore ways of combining personal experience with stories she saw embedded in the photographs of others, marrying memory with fantasy.

“Life has always pushed me in the direction of creativity,” states Weiss, who now works in her art studio in Wimberley, Texas.

 Painting was a natural progression for her artwork, exploring both abstract and experimental. Her paintings unfold instinctively. Her influences include early American modernist painters of America: Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, Georgia O’Keeffe.
