Peggy Lamm’s artistic life began when she was selected to design covers for her elementary school’s monthly newsletters and paint murals for the school library.
“Many years later, with my baby daughter in my arms, I visited the elementary school and my murals were still in place,’’ she said.
Lamm attended Winthrop College, graduated with a business degree and has worked as an accountant since 1966.
Lamm’s interests over the years have included flower arrangements through the local garden club, which earned her blue ribbons at the Augusta Exchange Club Fair. She has created wreaths, permanent flower arrangements, painted bird houses, painted mailboxes and various other home decorations while participating in craft shows in and around North Augusta as well as Boone, N.C.
Her first love has always been painting in oils, acrylics and watercolors. She has entered juried shows in Augusta and Fripp Island, S.C.
Lamm concentrates on prints of various historical sites in North Augusta, such as the Palmetto House (Seven Gables), American Legion Post 71 (the original building) and the old North Augusta Elementary School.
Lamm is a member of the North Augusta Artists Guild and participated in the recent Symbols of South Carolina Project with the City of North Augusta, in which members of the guild gifted symbolic paintings to the city for display at the Municipal Building.
