Sedona Winefest Poster
The 2012 Sedona Winefest poster was designed by Peggy Sands. Born into an artistic family in New York, Sands’ early exposure to art was an integral part of her childhood. Her formal education began at age 13 in her high school art room. There she learned the fundamentals of art and design, drawing, painting and printmaking. Professional recognition came early; at 16 she won an honorable mention in Seventeen Magazine’s National Illustration contest; three years later she went on to win 1st prize. Sands currently lives in Sedona Arizona and She teaches drawing, watercolor and composition at the Sedona Arts Center, and leads workshops at SAC and other Centers in the US and Europe.
