Peggy is an animator, illustrator, and teaching artist.  After studying digital design at Pratt Institute, she gained professional experience in post-production, creating animation and special effects for film and television. An interest in film and video festivals led to a position in the education department at The Walters Art Museum, Baltimore. She has training in a variety of museum pedagogies and has created accessible experiences with art & media for all ages and abilities. These learning environments support intergenerational fun and learning outside of the classroom and include installations, obstacle courses, collaborative art projects and events in museums and arboretums. Most recently, she is researching and making craft-based animation and optical toys. Her research connects early media technologies and current theories of art education, with a particular interest in creating programs that encourage slow looking and extended conversations.
