“”I was a Navy Wife, Mother, Critical Care Nurse, and Golfer for many years. We lived in many different states and countries. I spend summers on the Oregon Coast, enjoying family, and live in the Willamette Valley during the winter. My art background has been with clay–hand-built, pottery, and tile design until I discovered a painting with wax and epoxy.”  Peg Wells
