Peg Pennell is a native
Nebraskan, born and raised in Omaha. While enjoying
all aspects of working with textiles, she is particularly
attracted to quilts as the medium for expressing herself.
Primarily drawn to make
pieces inspired by nature, Peg also delights in creating
quilts with a vibrant and playful flair. She relishes
the mental stimulation of designing and executing a
particularly challenging project.
Peg has been teaching
quilting skills to others for more than 25 years and has won
over 200 ribbons and awards, both locally and
internationally, for her work. After being
commissioned to do a piece for a lobby in a business, she
found she enjoyed making art for others to view.
Hoping to enlighten the public that quilts are not just bed
coverings, she continues to search out venues that will show
her work in a gallery setting.
Her pieces are
quilts..................but they are also art.
