Peggy Lauria, Canton

Canton resident Peggy Lauria, who created the artwork "Ready to Run" on this week's cover, was introduced to the art world in October 2004. She attended a watercolor class at the Farmington Valley Art Center, followed by an oil class at the West Hartford Art League. Her series of six Chagall-inspired watercolors of the prophets can be seen at Holy Family Monastery in West Hartford. She has a website at A graduate of the University of Hartford, Lauria earned her degree in clinical psychology in mid-life and has a private practice in Canton. She sees many parallels in art and psychology. Both involve rich stories and connecting people. Though horses are her specialty, she also has a fondness for painting cats, dogs and cows.
