Peg’s work focuses on significant forms, patterns and colour combinations in natural and urban landscapes.  A common thread linking much of her work is decay.  This could be a weather beaten, decomposing tree stump, a track worn into the landscape by generations of feet, the crumbling and erosion of landscapes or the peeling paint on a neglected building.  Peg manipulates images based on landscapes using a variety of media, sometimes detailed and intricate, sometimes abstract and free. 

The process of etching lends itself to representing these themes as the plate is itself eroded by the acid, scraped and polished, scratched and sometimes cut into fragments. 

The eye may be caught by a distant horizon, or drawn in to examine more closely a small fragment of the landscape.
