Peggy McGivern currently lives in Taos, New Mexico and comes from three generations of artists in her hometown of Denver, Colorado. She first began selling her work in a pub in Manchester, England and has now had one-woman shows across the United States. She is represented in galleries in California, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico, and has been published in Southwest Art Magazine, Western Art Magazine, and American Art Collector. McGivern was a founder of the Tulsa Artist’s Coalition and the Tulsa Center for Contemporary Art. The artist’s work is reminiscent of the 1940’s in her color palette, often combining muted tone of burnt orange, rust, mossy greens, and warm plum with bright pops of cool pink, red, yellow, or teal. Peggy McGivern depicts the people and places she encounters in her travels around the world.
