Artist Bio

A second generation Arizonan born in Phoenix, Peggy Immel spent her youth traveling the world as the daughter of a career Air Force veteran. She took her first oil painting class in Salina, Kansas at ten. In college she studied architecture at Arizona State University and after her marriage, she took art classes at three major New England art schools along with workshops with admired artists. While living in Boston she became a rock and ice climber, a turning point where nature and adventure became her muse. Moving to Taos with her husband brought her back to her Western roots where her landscapes are inspired by her love of the outdoors and the Southwest’s exotic beauty.
