Peggy Curtis

Seattle

Peggy Olafson Curtis was born in Seattle, USA and grew up in nearby regions during the turbulent Sixties.


Her love of photography began with a film camera and a high school course in photography. Her artistic inspiration came a few years later during a two-year residence in Japan. There she became immersed in the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, which holds that there is beauty value in all states of being, including decay. Now she loses herself in junkyards in search of an interesting patina on a rusting surface or a pleasing arrangement of shape and color in the broken paint.


She wants an image that somehow transcends the literal in the viewer’s imagination, suggesting a mood, a greater mystery, a timelessness. She sees rivers, ponds, and maybe a forest of healing trees in the leave behinds of time, use, and nature.

Her work has been featured in Seattle and various galleries in the US. She is a member of NANPA (The North American Nature Photography Association).
