For watercolor artist Peggi Habets, drawing and painting have been a part of her life since childhood. After studying graphic design in college and working as a designer and art director for 15 years, Peggi decided to return to her original passion—fine art.
"I started studying with several well-known painters and discovered, to my delight, that watercolor is an exciting medium to work with,”says Peggi.
While Peggi also loves working with dry media like charcoal and pencil, her medium of choice is watercolor.“Watercolor has a fluidity and spontaneity that I have not found with any other medium,”Peggi says.

the painting is wonderful and all of the thoughts on water color, i share - save that i have not been good at portraits - it is posible that it is because i was "told" water color was the "wrong" medium for them and some how still believe it...I think i can change my mind
