Peggy has been exhibiting her award winning Fine Art
photography in Museums and Galleries across the United States
for the past nineteen years. Her images are included in many permanent
collections, including The First Viet Nam
Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire, New Mexico.
An activist in social issues, and influenced by her
American Indian heritage, Peggy produced a Photographic Expose -
Secrets Behind The Wall: An American Indian Viet Nam Veteran's Private
Battlefield At Home. The exhibit consists of over one
hundred black and white images depicting the life of one Viet Nam veteran,
while encompassing many veterans' lives.
This project, among others, led her to her current
involvement in photographing and interviewing veterans from across the
United States. America's Veterans, the non-profit corporation she is the
co-founder of, will bring this multi-media traveling
photographic exhibit, The Living Wall©, into existence. The Living Wall©
will honor all living veterans, while bringing
awareness to who our veterans are and in what conditions they exist today -
In 1999, Peggy also co-founded Citizens For
Veteran's Rights, in an effort to help stop the privatization of veteran
land; a nationwide issue that later became
known as "The Land Grab". During her involvement with Citizens For Veteran's
Rights she served as their Media Coordinator.
Since 1981, Peggy has been exhibiting an on going
project of Sepia toned Gelatin Silver images, Tipis of the Plains
Tribes, depicting American Indian home life, both past and present. The
traveling exhibit also includes portraits of
contemporary American Indians.
She is known nationally for her beadwork and
silverwork. Peggy shares her expertise by teaching beaded loom work and
beaded jewelry at the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles, CA.
She is currently a Board Member of the San Joaquin
River Intertribal Heritage Educational Corporation where she teaches
photography, silver work and beadwork.
