Artist and Architect Peggy Armand spent her life in the Caribbean. This colorful and inspiring environment gave rise to a keen observation of natural forms, patterns, textures and colors found in the ocean and lush tropical vegetation.
Armand expanded on her artist inclinations at the Pratt Institute of Architecture where she learned to turn a concept into reality. Over her 20 year artist career , you can see her architectural education making definitive imprints in her work. Peggy’s method makes use of watercolor and acrylic, in addition to East Asian paper, hand dyed muslin, linen and molten wax. Her work is made from a wide range of media, subjects, inspiration and texture. Keeping the subjects of her pieces simple, it is her use of texture, style, contrast and a variety of media that give her work a wealth of vividness and movement.
Armand's work can be seen in private and corporate collections world-wide. She is also in the permanent collection of the Mandarin Oriental, Miami and has had two solo exhibitions there during Art Basel Miami Beach.
