Peggy Cox is a Professor of Art at Westminster College in New Wilmington PA. Although
Peggy is a landscape artist who works in oils, watercolors, and collage, she
has recently begun to explore the world of textiles using ecoprint and natural dyes
made from regional plants, and from her own dye garden. She is constantly exploring
and pushing boundaries both in her own art and in the classroom where she recently
taught a cluster course with a biology professor where students explored the science
behind dyeing and the artistic expression thereof.
