About the Artist
Peggy Baze is the dedicated mother of two grown children and a member of the Board of Directors for notMYkid. After discovering a hidden talent for art, Peggy founded the non-profit, Artful Giving in 2014. Artful Giving’s mission is to use art to help create sustainable revenue for charities focused on children and families in the community. Peggy’s original artwork is now replicated in notecard form with 100% of all proceeds going to the prevention programs for youth at notMYkid.
Peggy has personal experience with the devastation that addiction and other negative youth behaviors can cause. As the mother of a recovering addict, she knows what it feels like to almost lose a child to addiction and to have to fight for her child’s life. That is the driving force behind Peggy’s commitment to help educate our community about prevention. “Prevention can only happen when you arm yourself with the knowledge.”
Peggy’s original artwork titled “Now You See Me” was chosen by the State of Arizona to represent a statewide addiction awareness campaign and now hangs at the State Capitol.
