About Peggy Lee

Peggy Lee was born in Seoul, Korea and has resided in the United States for a long period of time. Having been educated with a bachelors of fine arts from Korea, she studied art in the United States as well. As a full-time artist and art educator, her vision is multifaceted and cultural at the same time. Her level of creativity is outstanding with a strong work ethic. She often states that painting is very much habitual and a daily pattern. She makes art a part of her schedule but in actuality, it is her life. Her current work reflects the fact that society is slowly dissipating into a world of isolation. Our constant obsession with networking online is deterring us from the true values or morality we claim to hold true. Peggy's works can be seen as a huge cobweb in it's entirety, which ironically mirrors how technology works. It represents the need and re-evaluation for tradition, unity, and a love for humanity. Her art is a direct representation of creativity, depth, and complexity. Ultimately, her work continues to be inspired by the mutuality in people all over the world.
