Proudly Displaying Local Art by Peggy Nelson

This September, our office entrance gained much more personality!  One of our clients, Peggy, shared her painting talent with us.

We first met Peggy in 2016 when she urgently called us looking for help with her home’s crawlspace.  We were able to solve her crawlspace problems, and needless to say, she was a happy client. At the completion of the crawlspace project, Peggy gave us new lunch boxes with hand-painted caricatures on them – and we were impressed!

Our admiration of her painting turned into us commissioning her to paint three buildings to be showcased in our new office. She spent hundreds of hours creating these works for us. They are gorgeous, adding a lot of personal touch to our office. We were amazed and appreciative of the tremendous amount of time and effort she put into creating these works of art for us to enjoy. The paintings are so detailed, you can even see artwork on the walls inside of the buildings, grains in the plywood, tiny M’s (a subtle nod at METHOD) in the detailing of the gridiron building, and the plants look 3D (to name a few of our favourite details of the artwork).

As a bonus, Peggy gave us one of her 2015 works, hungry ants raiding a picnic, which we’ve hung in our kitchen area. It reminds us of our employees raiding our Friday snacks, and we’re grateful she passed it on to us too.

Please feel free to stop by our office to see the paintings first hand!
