Peggy Ann Thayer: January 3, 1954 - January 5, 2010
It is with great sadness that I share the news that Peggy Thayer passed away on January 5, 2010. There was a memorial celebrating her life and work on Saturday, May 15, 2010 at the Featherstone Center for the Arts in Oak Bluffs, Mass. The memorial brochure can be viewed here.
Below is a slide show with some of Peg's paintings, accompanied by some of her words about the creative process. Please use the arrows or numbers for navigation.
“My interest in the creative process and my curiosity about the nature of creativity has been a life long pursuit, fueled by my personal practice as a painter and writer.…
“Over the years I have begun to realize that my creative work not only brings a deep sense of inner healing, of integration, but that it has often brought deep shifts in my ordinary awareness.…
“Not only does the world appear differently after a painting session, colors brighter, forms clearer, but I feel at times a deep connection to something greater than myself.…
“I have come to see the importance of my creative practice not only in making
visible that which is taking place within, not only as a way to know myself and make
myself known but as a way to connect with a deeper, sacred life giving force.”
