Peggy Cross, A.S.I.D.
Artist and Feng Shui Expert
Decades ago, Peggy Cross brought her love affair with creativity, energy and interior spaces to her early careers as a real estate broker and criminal probation officer in Indianapolis, Indiana. Incidentally, jail cells have lousy Feng Shui. When she went into real estate sales her motivation was “Now I can help people find their dream homes”.
Beauty supports the soul – in nature, through artwork and all creative endeavors, and it is especially important in our homes. Our home is meant to support and nurture us, functionally and aesthetically. Peggy began her interior design career in 1988, has been a Feng Shui practitioner since 1998, and professional artist since 2008. Her mission is to aid in creating beauty, joy, peace and desired change in the lives of her students and clients. This includes raising awareness of the potential for Divine connection through Feng Shui and artwork.
She has traveled coast-to-coast studying with Chinese Masters of both the Compass and the Black Sect Tantric Buddhist (BTB) Schools of Feng Shui as well as Vaastru Shastra; she has additionally studied with many other teachers – over 1000 hours of classroom study in all. She learned to talk to bug devas, to douse, and to clear spaces of negative energies.
In addition to personal residences, Peggy has consulted with art galleries, law offices, corporations, manufacturers, builders, and retail endeavors. Using her recommendations, her clients and students have found spouses, sold homes, enhanced their spiritual growth, healed family relationships, changed careers, increased financial flow; children have improved their grades and relationships with absent parents, and more. Anything is possible.
Known for her joyfulness and sense of humor, Peggy has taught Feng Shui classes and lectured in Florida, Nevada, Michigan, North Carolina and Virginia. She has taught both Interior Design and Feng Shui at Tidewater Community College in Chesapeake, Virginia and the Art Institute of Virginia Beach, various colleges in Southwest Florida and numerous other venues in these states as well several others. She has been interviewed for more than 200 online shows, television and radio, and had multiple articles published by magazines in Florida, Virginia, Canada and online.
The beauty and harmony that are the essence of Peggy’s spiritual ideal are reflected in her colorful artwork, initially evoking the energies of Feng Shui. After a serious car wreck her work changed and she now expresses through color, texture and flow that is totally non-representational, created in loving joyfulness, accompanied by beautiful music, and guided by spiritual masters from the other side. Some pieces have messages channeled from Spirit by loving friends. Some people have experienced a vortex and heard music in her art. Some have heard voices. After breaking her right wrist, she began painting left-handed which evoked tears and dizziness, experiences that were powerful and disorienting, and she now uses both hands for creation. Her artwork is in private collections throughout the country.
Peggy Cross received her B.F.A. in Interior Design from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, and her B.A. in Political Science from Indiana/Purdue Universities at Indianapolis. She is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (A.S.I.D.) nationally certified through N.C.I.D.Q. and a Virginia certified Interior Designer.
