Peg O'Connell is an artist residing in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Her artistic career started as a hobby in 1995 (or there abouts when she began taking photographic classes at the Boston Center for Adult Education in continued developing her photographic style via evening workshop classes at the New England School of Photography starting in the autumn of 1999.
Peg utilizes the older processes of photography, such as creating black & white photographs in a darkroom and then hand coloring the photographs. She also uses lesser know photographic processes to create cyanotypes, anthotypes and lumen prints.
