Bold Original Art to Stimulate the Senses and Satisfy the Soul

Originally from Richmond, BC, Peggy majored in Fine Arts and was recognized with a Richmond District Award. Encouraged to further her studies, she attended VCC-Langara in Vancouver, and received a diploma in the Fine Arts Program.   Peggy and her husband moved to the Okanagan in 1989, and now reside in Penticton, BC.

From an early age, Peggy has possessed a hunger for creativity. Her compositions are inspired by her natural surroundings, with a concentration on the west coast of British Columbia.

The majority of Peggy's work includes acrylics on stretched canvas, and a more recent journey of india ink and watercolour creations on paper. By creating her own canvases, Peggy can explore unconventional canvas combinations; her play on diptych and triptych canvases is unique, and has quickly become her signature style.

Peggy Stel became an Active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists in 2011, and since then has participated in several juried shows in Vancouver, as well as the Okanagan Valley.  She is proud to be the owner of Picture This Custom Framing and Gallery in Penticton, and feels fortunate that her work immerses her in the fine arts and provides opportunities to meet other artists on a daily basis.
