IN THE SPOTLIGHT: The Shell Art of Peggy Green

This post kicks off a series of posts at the Fine Shell Art Blog, acquainting shell art fans with the work of some truly amazing shell artists.



Seasoned
Shell Artist, Peggy Green is one of the very few Shell Artists today who create Victorian inspired shell art pieces. Using hand cut shapes and her own unique designs, she incorporates the same breeds of seashells used by Victorian-era Shell Artists into her beautiful and highly collectible shell art pieces.

Peggy Green and her amazing shell art were featured in the Fall 2010 of issue of
Antique Shops & Designers (on sale at Barnes & Noble and Borders Books now). Photo's of Peggy Green's shell work in this post are from that article.

  4. I'll be set up at Marburger Farm in Round Top, Texas this coming spring. The dates are March 29th thru April 2. I'll be in the building next to the office there in the middle of the grounds. Hope to see all my old friends and former customers.....haven't done the show in over three years, so looking forward to being in the mix again..... Hope to see you there.
