After summering for many years on northwest Michigan’s Crystal Lake, Peggy Hawley
and her husband moved their residence from suburban Washington, D.C., to Frankfort,
by the “Big Lake," to be nearer her favorite subjects. Peggy finds artistic
inspiration in and around this “town for all seasons” – with its abundant boats and
deep blue waters in summer, blazing autumn foliage, snow-covered lakes and trails
in winter, and springtime blooms of trillium and lilac. Nearby Point Betsie Lighthouse,
other historic structures, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore are among her
frequent “Up North” subjects.
Peggy Hawley has exhibited extensively in mid-Atlantic galleries as well as in Michigan’s
Benzie, Grand Traverse, and Leelanau counties. She has a Master of Fine Arts degree
in painting from The American University in the District of Columbia and has taught
art to children and adults.
