Peggy Myrick Knight
Peggy Myrick Knight is a natural artist who began sketching at the age of five and painted a self-portrait in watercolor at the age of nine. She was Advertising and Display Manager for a large department store for twelve years. This creative job naturally led to painting flowers, landscapes, portraits and numerous other commissions. She is a master of all mediums including oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastels.
Peggy’s work has hung in the White House, banks, churches and private collections. A magnolia painting has hung on the set of an NBC Affiliate TV station for several years.
In 1992, Tommy Sims of Gatlinburg, TN asked Peggy if she would be interested in painting “nostalgic” art. At times patrons offered suggestions regarding subject matter, while much was recalled from Peggy or Tommy’s childhood. It is their desire that some of these paintings will touch your heart and cause you to fondly remember times past.
