Peggy Bilbro

Peggy Bilbro is a photographer, artist and writer living in Huntsville, Alabama who began her artistic pursuits after a long career as a teacher of Spanish. Her education was in Spanish language and literature, with no formal training in art or photography. She has been a writer for many years, specializing in poetry, and has been a long-time member of The Writers Group, a small group of women writers in Huntsville. She has explored a variety of artistic media, from photography to charcoal to oils. Her literary studies and artistic explorations have led her to attempt to translate the lyrical counterpoint between nature and humans into her photographic images. Much of her photography is the result of extensive travels from the U.S. Southwest to Europe and Asia. Peggy has exhibited her photographs at the Monte Sano Art Festival, Panoply of the Arts, the Decatur River Clay Fine Arts Festival, the Murfreesboro ‘Boro Art Crawl, the Huntsville Arts Council pARTy, and the aRtZ Studio.
