The ancient art-form of hand-painted feathers has been documented since the early 1800s. But it was not until the early 1980s that Peg Fennimore found her spiritual voice in the art of traditional feather painting. Within a couple years Peg's spiritual artwork became popular across the nation and now her artwork can be found in private collections around the world.
Peg Fennimore uses her heritage as a sixth generation Cherokee and the spirits of the animals as the inspiration for her unique artwork. She uses many beautiful and natural elements like turkey and ostrich feathers, rabbit fur and steer skulls. Peg honors the spirits of the animals she portrays by using only legally and respectfully acquired materials.
Chunka served as the wolf ambassador to the mountain area until the age of two when Peg returned her to her birthplace to take a mate and enjoy life with the pack. Chunka and her mate Erie, happily lived out their long lives at the Indigo Mountain Nature Center until the summer of 2006, when they both passed on within a week of each other.
Peg is a former board member, handler and care-giver at the Indigo Mountain Nature Center in Lake George, Colorado. Peg is still a volunteer and a vocal supporter for this very special organization.
