Peggy Kauffman is a professional portrait artist and animalier who works in bronze sculpture and pastel painting. Her anatomical knowledge and ability to render the unique essence of her subject matter is a hallmark of her poignant work.
"Representational Impressionism remains a focused quest as I aspire to balance a personal interpretation of my subjects while preserving the quality of realism a client expects from my work.”
Kauffman received a BA in Fine Arts from Bennett College in Millbrook, New York, and furthered her education at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Skilled in the life history of horses from years of training, grooming and competition, Kauffman considers Paul Brown, preeminent American illustrator of equestrian subjects, the greatest influence on her work as an artist.
