Vibrant! Colorful! Exciting! Words only begin to describe the works of artist Margaret Stermer-Cox. Under the tutelage of her father, John Stermer, and the encouragement of her mother, Lucy, Ms. Stermer-Cox has developed an unequaled style of artistry.
Drawing from life and her imagination (both figuratively and literally) and using lines, shapes, and color to bring expression to her relationship with her surroundings, Peggy (as she likes to be called) creates new realities from the reality of her experiences.
One series of paintings is the result of her interactions with “Maggie”, her Aunt Mary’s cat. Expressions of times from quiet and mellow loving to feisty and playful are presented in wondrous colors that capture the moment and feeling. In another, Peggy defines relationships with siblings substituting the animal characters, Toy Pony and MsKitty, as people in her life. What evolves is a fascinating look at Peggy’s childhood.
As a professional artist and avid student of art, Peggy continues to develop her drawing skills as the fundamental of all her art and to experiment, unrestricted and unafraid of seeking new avenues of expression.
We hope you enjoy the delightful artistry of Margaret Stermer-Cox and invite you to browse her web site and brighten your day!
