Peggy Juneau (Blackfoot/San Carlos Apache) is the Palo Verde Artist of the Month for March.
She originally hailed from Los Angeles prior to relocating to Arizona. Ms. Juneau specializes in Native-themed mixed-media art. She uses bold and earthy colors to convey her personal, traditional and contemporary Native ideas. She includes most of her own photographs, feathers, and bits of nature, accented with acrylic and pastel.
“I love to create and reinterpret within my art native themes, like being a strong Native Woman or portraying a moment at an Apache Sunrise Dance,” she stated.
Two of Ms. Juneau’s mixed media collages, “Native Land” and “Native Women,” were juried in and exhibited at the West Valley Arts Gallery. Her original mixed media collage entitled “Dia de Los Muertos” (Day of the Dead), was included as part of the “Tradiciones: Honoring Hispanic Heritage” Exhibit at the West Valley Arts Gallery. Ms. Juneau also creates recycled art, and currently has three hubcap recycled pieces on exhibit at WHAM in Surprise.
