Magenta, Watercolor mounted on an Ampersand Clayboard

This is a close up view of a Dahlia. I painted many layers of transparent glazes to achieve the depth and intensity of color. I'm looking to expand my workshops nationally. My workshops include 2 day intense color exploration, this is not your usual color chart, this is about what's in your "toolbox", learning to maximize your important tools and save money. I teach glazing techniques and how to mount a watercolor to an Ampersand Clayboard. For additional information feel free to email me;


Happy Painting!

About Peggy martinez



The artist was born in Rochester, NY. At the age of 8 Peggy and her family moved to Salinas, Puerto Rico where they loved for 10 years. Resources in school were limited, and supplies in Art classes consisted of any computer paper and pencil you can find. In 1981 the family moved back to Rochester, NY.  In between that time the artist attended college for a brief period at Kutztown State College, in Kutztown, Pa. She then began a long career in banking for 29 years, mostly in a Management capacity.  Never leaving her passion for art, during her last 14 years in banking the artist rekindled that fire inside by learning from books, local artist and attending workshops. During the summer of 2010, she resigned from her the corporate world to paint on a full time basis.


The artist is affiliated with the Webster Art Club, Rochester Art Club and the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society. She has independently coordinated non-instructional trips to Martha’s Vineyard and Chautauqua for her and other’s painting enjoyment.  


Her painting, training, management and marketing experience has led her to teach watercolor classes for all levels, independent workshops and demonstrations for various Art Clubs and Guilds. Her goal is to expand her workshops on a national level, build a solid collection of artwork and ultimately establish and be represented by an Art Gallery.
