SPONSORED POST: An artist event featuring Peggy Ellis is taking place through September 28th at Page Waterman, Gallery & Framing in Wellesley Square at 592A Washington St. “Windswept — Impressions of the Cape & Islands” will showcase works in oil and watercolor that showcase the artist’s colorful, beautiful, and expressive paintings.
All events and exhibitions at Page Waterman, Gallery & Framing are open to the public.
Peggy Ellis spent childhood summers in Avalon, New Jersey, a breezy spit of land off the Atlantic coast. It was a child’s paradise. She swam, sailed and watched her father, renowned artist Ray Ellis, paint her world. His contagious enthusiasm eventually led her to study watercolors and oils on her own, while still painting by Ray’s side and absorbing his invaluable tips.
Ellis makes her home in the Carolina Low Country, where her studio has a panoramic view of Charleston’s downtown harbor. Rising each morning at dawn to catch the sunrise out her window, Ellis never lacks inspiration for her next painting.
