Peggy McCardle is relatively new to painting, having just begun in 2018. She is currently working mainly in oils, but also does pencil drawings and ink-and-wash water colors occasionally. She is a member of the Tarpon Springs Arts Association, Tarpon Springs, FL; the Professional Association of Visual Artists, in Dunedin, FL; and a founding member of the Tarpon Art Sisterhood, a group formed to help local artists find venues for exhibiting their art.
Her artworks focus on nature and landscapes, and are gathered from her travels both in the US and around the world. She has traveled extensively, both within the US and in Europe, Africa, and Asia, and her inspiration for the birds, animals, flowers and landscapes in her paintings and photography are from those trips and, as a current resident of Tarpon Springs, FL, the rich natural environment, especially the water birds that grace Florida’s shores and inlets.
Peggy has exhibited her work individually in local shows, and in group shows as one of 3 or 4 artists in three Tarpon Arts Sisterhood shows (June and November, 2019, at the Tarpon Art Guild; April, 2021, at the Stirling Studios and Gallery, Dunedin). She won 3rd place in the TSAA 2019 plein air Paint and Photo competition for her photography.
