Art with





art created from the heart

crafted with whimsy and love

What do you see when you look at a rock, a shell, or a pile of old newspapers? Peggy Ogden sees an opportunity to creatively expose the beauty within, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

Exposing the unseen potential and whimsical energy, Peggy turns rocks into sea turtles, shells into praying hands, and newspapers into curious pelicans. Whether the scale is as large as an elephant, or as small as a ladybug, drawn on paper or sculpted by hand, all of her subjects share a common trait – they all have a heart. Each one is born through creation.

As you peruse this body of work, you’ll begin to see that the world is full of whimsy and heart…you just need to look for it!

how we give back

bringing joy to others lives

Peggy’s art has always been about creating joy, not profit. She has gifted many of her sculptures to friends, families, and events. To honor her commitment to helping, Peggy donates all profits from each sale to Purple Leash, an organization which provides safe spaces for domestic abuse survivors and their pets. 

Nearly half of domestic abuse survivors delay leaving their situation because they can’t take their pets with them. This connection between pet and owner is a powerful influence on Peggy’s life and gives purpose to her generosity.

From inspiration to creation

Opening eyes and seeing possibility

Peggy is always creating. Whether it be starting a new midday sketch, playing around with new materials, or working on a commissioned project, she is always imagining new ways of bringing life to art.
