Art is an important part of my life. My love of art began at Parkland Junior High School when I had the opportunity to select art as an elective, which meant 6 periods of art a week. My art teacher was William Swallow, a renowned artist in this region. His influence has enabled my primitive style be expressed in my work.
My love of sculpture was honed by years of study at Baum Art School with Sculptor Richard Lieberman of Philadelphia.
Previously I studied watercolor with William Wentz. 2011 and 2012, studied soft pastel at workshops in Provence and Grenoble, France, with David Garrison & Cecile Houel, Signature Member of the American Pastel Society. 2013 I studied watercolor with Tom Lynch and Jean Spicer. 2014 I studied with Tom Lynch again, Tony Couch and Eric Wiegardt. 2015 I studied with Mel Stabin, Sterling Edwards and Lian Zhen. 2016 Tony Couch returned for his second workshop in Allentown and Frank Webb.
Peg McCormack is known for her Pennsylvania German Chalkware. 1986 she began sculpting her original pieces in earth clay, a mold was made. Each piece was cast in stone, handpainted signed and numbered. In 1992 “Country Home Magazine” published a four page article of her sculptures. Her sculptures are in collections through out the United States and have been in exhibits and shows in Pennsylvania.
