Peggy Dlugos takes me to a back corner of her home, to a just-right cozy and tidy work space. A pair of full-sized windows on both walls let in light, awareness of nature, and views of Garden of the Gods.
“This is where I am most of the time, during the winter,” she says. “But summer time, I’m out there. I consider all of that out there to be my studio.
“When I’m taking a walk, when I’m dyeing out on the deck or working in the garden, that’s all studio time to me. This (room) is kind of like the master planning (space). But everything happens out there.”
Peggy, 61, is a fiber artist. She dyes and prints on fabric and paper, using plants she grows or those she collects from windfall. But, going beyond her art work, Peggy shares a deeply human and evolving story with Humanitou. One of joy and survival, resilience and beautiful emergence as an artist with pure purpose.
