When I have a pen or paintbrush in my hand I feel “in the flow,” I am calming my mind: I am articulating simplistic, childlike, innocent dreams.

My practice stems from my interest in mindfulness and art as therapy. I am interested in this because of my own experience of using art to overcome an anxiety disorder. I use black ink pens and watercolours because it enables me to work loosely and freely with bright colours. To my audience I offer cartoon portraits, cheerful logos, prints and gifts. By connecting my audience with my offering I want my audience to experience the simplicity, innocence and playfulness of childhood.

Peggys First Art Exhibition SQUARE

Peggy Pegworth is an artist, poet and blogger, based in South West England. She has a BA(Hons) degree in animation and has been blogging professionally since 2011. (See PeggyMelmoth.com for writing services.)

She began performing poetry in London in 2000, and has published a short collection of poems called Agent Pegworth: Licensed to Cruise, and a strange picture-book for grown-ups called The Theakletuffin Poem.

She has also released a folk-pop single called Cardigan, and an album of poetry mixed with jazz, vodka and techno-house, called Lethal Cocktails.

Peggy lived on a narrowboat for 13 years, travelling the canals, but now she lives in a cottage in Devon. When she isn’t drawing or writing, she likes walking beside the sea, or in the woods, and spending time with her children, or talking to the cat.
