Peppi Elona began her training in the visual arts at Finch College in New York City. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and her Master of Arts from Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey.
He art investigates both abstract and figurative work employing a painting technique that utilizes fragmented bits of color, large flat solid areas of color, and expressive line to define pictorial space. Three-dimensional materials have been recently added to diversify her palette and expression. Peppi’s abstract works are often formal aesthetic explorations using a broad range of color and innovative design elements to create unique visual effects. She is guided by the desire to elicit an emotional reaction by the viewer when making color and design choices. Her figures are not portraits, but rather archetypes, female symbols for various stages of life, or symbolic depictions of everyday activities or meaningful events.
She has shown her works in museums and exhibition spaces in New Jersey and Florida.
