Interestingly, Peggy didn’t plan on being an artist. For a long time she lived a pretty regular American life, and almost pursued a major in religion studies. Her life changed radically after she accepted an out-of-the-blue offer from a former boss to help set up a clothing line in India.
She “fell in love” with Delhi, which was a world away from her Kansas City upbringing. “The way I was assuming people were judging me, looking at me, and criticizing me, went completely out the window”, she has said.
Returning to the US, Peggy decided she’d gathered enough knowledge to start her own clothing line, and open her own shop. Today, whether she’s making clothes, films or storefronts, she creates whirlwinds of delightful chaos. As if to reflect her restless creative energy, her hair color switches depending on her mood, from oil-black to white blonde.
