As a student, and also as a teenager, there are only so many creative outlets that allow for personal expression and individuality; people are changing, we’re changing, the world around us is changing, and all at such an unbelievably fast rate... sometimes it can be hard to find yourself in a moment. However, every time I take a class with Peggy, or do her exercises, or have a conversation with her, I find myself being completely in my own body. I can feel myself in time and in the volumes of the space around me. I find that this inception can only be found for me while in the midst of a Peggy Baker-ian experience.
The first time I saw her work was when I came across a YouTube video called “Spacial View of Pond”, and what an incredible force of human power that was. Her ability to tap into different volumes, emotions, connective senses, and internal regions of the inner space, were completely astonishing; the overall thoughtfulness and integrity of her work inspire me as an artist and also as a person. Her work, her devotion to teaching, her interest in development, and her sheer brilliance, is a gift to anyone and everyone who are able to experience it. Thank you for everything you do Peggy.
