Harvey was Peggy’s first life-sized sculpture, a railroad conductor that was created for the New Canaan Garden Club. Peggy’s willingness to learn and challenge herself with a new type of project and medium made Harvey incredibly challenging… and unique!
Peggy collaborated with her father, a talented woodworker, to create a sturdy structure for the sculpture. She honored the heartwarming experience of working with her dad by adding a red velvet heart inside the finished piece.
Since then, a heart has been a part of all of her work, be it sculpture, drawings, or paintings, as a reminder that art is supposed to make you feel good, and is an expression of the joy of life.
