Pegi Barnes-Sharp

 An award-winning watercolorist and pastelist, Pegi Sharp’s portraits are included in many private and corporate collections. She has exhibited in juried and invitational shows as well as single and group showings throughout North Carolina.

As an artist my goal is to create an image that represents form and challenges the mind to reach beyond the present. I deeply appreciate nature in all forms and often seek the safety of shadowed and hidden spaces to embellish with painting. The quietness that is found through creativity is truly a gift from God. I desire to grow and learn more about spiritual and physical healing through creativity and meditation. May I always bring light and humbly share my God given talents to work nobly in service to others.

Pegi Sharp’s love for painting dates back to childhood. Having grown up in rural and coastal North Carolina, her subjects often reflect the flowers native to this region and seaside compositions. Pegi also specializes in portraits, enjoying the challenge of creative a likeness and a great composition that can stand on it’s own as a painting.

Pegi works in watercolor, pastel and oils. She welcomes further opportunities as she continues to grow.
