Peg Flood is a watercolor painter, amateur photographer, and writer living in Orleans. She specializes in painting Cape Cod landscapes, “local color” scenes in ink and watercolor, animals, and nature as captured by her camera.
Peg was born and grew up in Norwood, MA on Ellis Pond in an extended family “compound” of houses built by her paternal grandfather. Summers were spent in simple, old cottages owned by the Chase family on a bluff overlooking the Town Cove in Eastham, and with maternal grandparents nearby in Orleans. Drawing on her Scandinavian heritage and her memories of childhood summers in cozy, old cottages, she strives for a feeling of “hygge” in her art. In Danish, “hygge” is the lifestyle of contentedness, with warm and happy feelings resulting from the enjoyment of simple things and the company of family and friends
She is a member of Cape Cod Art Center, Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Cape Cod Writers Center, and the Chatham Creative Arts Center. Her writing, and photos have appeared in Cape Cod and national magazines.
