About Peggy Cross

     Peggy lives her life as a cultural creative.  Her experience began when
     her  mother first sat the eight-year-old down, together with her younger 
     siblings,  to paint a still life in oil.  Copying fashion illustrations was a pre-teen 
     passion.  Art  class experiences in high school were not positive.  She
     experimented  with abstracts early on in the 60’s and trashed them.  She took
     art adult education classes in the 80’s and life drawing was her favorite class
     while pursuing her B.F.A. at The Ringling College of Art and Design in
     Sarasota,  Florida.

    Peggy Cross is an award-winning Interior Designer who began her design    
    career  in 1988 in Naples, Florida. Her first foray into this field was designing
    models for a local developer and she always used original artwork by local
    artists in her work for both models and private clients. She began studying
    Feng  Shui in 1994 and has been a professional Feng Shui teacher, lecturer,
    writer and  consultant since 1998. 

Her mission, through her art, Feng Shui, and design, is to   provide guidance to her clients, students and friends in creating
greater beauty,  joy, and peace in their lives through more nurturing and  beautiful homes.

The beauty and harmony that are the essence of Peggy’s spiritual ideal are reflected in her colorful artwork, initially evoking the energies of the Bagua and the Five Elements as she first painted seriously in 2008. She began with tiny 4x4” canvases that represented the Bagua – the life map of Feng Shui.  Within a few weeks she was invited to hold an individual show at the Association of Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach, Virginia and did so again in 2013.    Four of her largest pieces representing the Five Elements common to Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture and Feng Shui, currently hang in the A.R.E., property of the audio visual director, Kevin Grant.  

Peggy’s painting was interspersed with teaching Interior Design and Feng Shui for several years as an adjunct instructor at Tidewater Community College in Chesapeake, Virginia and then at The Art Institute of Virginia Beach in Virginia.  She poured her heart into this work. Going beyond the textbooks to introduce her students to Feng Shui and Sacred Geometry through research projects was a favorite tool she used to expand the vision of her students.

A serious car wreck in 2012 necessitated a break from both teaching and painting.  Then her painting totally changed, and is now expressed purely through color, texture and her imaginative, curvilinear brushstrokes depicting the universal flow of energy as she has seen it moving in nature. Her work is described variously as visionary, non-representational, and abstract expressionism.  She paints with love and joy, accompanied by beautiful music, sort of dancing at her easel, and guided by spiritual masters from the other side.  Some pieces have messages channeled by loving friends of many years’ experience with this modality of communication.  Now Peggy asks for guidance and writes to understand what messages these paintings have to tell her.   

Peggy’s artwork is in private collections in Arizona, Texas, Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, Minnesota, Montana, California, Ohio, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, and Iowa. 


Peggy Cross received her B.F.A. in Interior Design from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, and her B.A. in Political Science from Indiana/Purdue Universities at Indianapolis. She has been a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers A.S.I.D., N.C.I.D.Q. and Virginia Certified Interior Designer for many years. 


I met Peggy through a shared interest in energy medicine and the healing arts, and soon learned of her passion for Feng Shui, interior design and joyful living. Her art is a vibrant expression of life in its multiple dimensions, and I am a happy collector of many of her works. One of my favorites is a grouping of 5 canvases: each representing one of the 5 elements of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. I have others that represent wisdom, love and relationships and larger canvases depicting the Highest Good, the Mysteries Revealed and Joyful Play.  Each takes me to different states of mind and contemplation, and the complex use of color and texture hold my attention and interest over time. The beauty and energy they bring, make my house a home that reflects my heart and soul.
