Born in North Carolina and now living in New York, Peggy graduated from Eastern Carolina University and moved to New York City where she continued her education at the Art Students League, Pratt Institute and finally at City College, where she earned a Masters in Art.  She feels that the most important part of her education came from going to museums, galleries, associating with fellow artists and from trips to ancient cities in Europe.

Mrs. Blizzard said that, “painting is a visual medium and, as such, verbal statements usually prove inadequate”.  “I am intrigued with painting objects in the Dutch realist tradition”. “To me, the purpose of painting is to create a 3 dimensional space on a 2 dimensional surface and, hopefully, include a bit of poetry along the way.”
