This is about you

Here at The Pigeon Letters, we believe in people and passion above anything else. When someone has passion and drive, they should always have the chance to discover their potential through exploration of creative resources.

It became my mission to provide accessible and affordable tools for hobbyists, creators, entrepreneurs, and more.

There are a few things I can promise you:

I will consistently provide new resources for you.
Your story matters and there is a place for you in the creative world.
With practice, you will always make progress.

Mmkay. Elevator pitch time.

Hey, I'm Peggy

I am an internationally published artist, best-selling author, and award-winning educator. Over the past 7 years, I've had the honor of teaching over 500k students (yes srsly!) to blossom in their creativity.

As a self-taught artist born into creativity through a struggle with mental health, I promote embracing imperfections, living out loud, and I believe that anyone with a passion should feel empowered to create.

I live in Portland, Oregon and travel the world for speaking engagements and hands-on workshops. I am proud to be an LGBTQ+ and woman-owned small business that gives back every month by donating proceeds to nonprofits working to protect wildlife and animal welfare.

Behind the name

The Pigeon Letters

First of all, I love pigeons because they’re just too dang adorable, and the name is a bit of a spin on The Pigeon Post. Sending such important letters that had so much value informs a deeper meaning to our modern world, and I feel that creating art relates to that.

Also, look how cute. Look how majestic.

I needn't say more.

Let's talk about giving back

The Pigeon Letters is committed to protecting, preserving and restoring wildlife and its habitats, ending the fur trade, and most of all, speaking up for those without a voice.

It's not common knowledge that a lot of art supplies are created with animals. To learn more about this (and I mean A LOT more), click here.

Giving back is an essential part of our business practices. It's a standard we consider to be a no-brainer. We believe that if we can make one positive impact a day, just one, that we've succeeded.

Your continued support makes it possible to support organizations all over the globe who are working to better our earth. The Pigeon Letters passes on a portion of every sale to nonprofits working to save wildlife and rehabilitate injured and abandoned animals. Each month, a different organization is chosen.

We're proud to say that together, we've provided support for so many wonderful organizations.
