About Peggy Buchan 

Peggy Buchan was born and raised in Brunswick, Georgia. In 1990, after years of painting off and on, she brought out her supplies and begin to paint seriously. Her heart told her that she wanted to capture the peace of the Island. Within a year, her work was being shown at Left Bank Art Gallery. Her husband Dan helped Peggy clean out and prepare a tiny 1820’s tabby building on one of the most renowned and hidden island properties – Couper’s Plantation – and named it ‘Peggy’s Place’. This hideaway was a secret from the rest of the world; a perfect spot for Peggy to paint the marshes, wildlife, and peaceful images that have become her signature style.  

By 2009, after caring for her mother and husband for nearly a decade without painting, she resumed her heart’s work. Nowadays, she can be found creating tiny works of art on petite canvasses at the Pier, the Johnson rocks and Epworth-by-the-Sea.
