Peggy Cozzi is an abstract painter based in Dorset.
She studied Fine Art, painting at Portsmouth Polytechnic and completed a Fine Art MA at the Arts University Bournemouth in 2014. She has undertaken several solo and collaborative exhibitions, residencies and curating projects in the UK.

“My work focuses on process and media and an interplay between gesture and colour. I am interested in how the medium of paint can evoke imaginative responses and imply psychological states ; images grow out of the process and my interaction with the materials , I follow a journey with the painting to a point where colour and mark begin to trigger emotive associations , where the paint appears at once tactile and concrete yet simultaneously having the potential for illusion and the capacity to draw on the unconscious”
