Peggy Dembicer is a mixed media artist using a variety of techniques that spring from her background in fiberarts. She began her art career as a handweaver in the early 1980s, demonstrating a fondness for tapestry weaving. In the1990s Dembicer’s work shifted to the framed and sculptural pieces that she exhibits in galleries and private collections throughout Connecticut. She exhibits her work regularly at Gallery on the Green in Canton, Artwell in Torrington, Silvermine Art Guild in New Canaan and at the West Hartford Art League.

One area of concentration is paperweaving. In this method she executes two and three dimensional framed constructions from paper, fiber and beads. These designs are pictorial, geometric or abstract.
Another primary concentration is Dembicer’s use of seed beads in a variety of forms. Her pictorial and patterned expressions may be woven, embroidered, applied with paints or created as intricate mosaics. Inspired by the work of the Huichol Indians of Mexico whose beaded designs are set in beeswax, Dembicer’s mosaic interpretations are formed from beads and glue. They often contain countless thousands of beads and take months to create.
Dembicer’s recent works include explorations into acrylics, polymers, beads, metal and stones in combination. Her creative and unique pieces are stimulating and appealing to a wide audience.
Peggy Dembicer currently lives in Avon, Connecticut. She divides her time between her active family life, her full time insurance career and some time each day devoted to her art.
