Maija Peeples (1942 - )

Biography

Maija was born in Riga, Latvia in 1942.  Maija and her parents then moved to Northern California eight years later.  Originally she planned a career in mathematics but in her third year at the University of California at Davis she created paintings, prints and ceramic sculptures of  zany lovable animals and bright flowers.

Maija studied under Wayne Thiebaud, William T. Wiley and Robert Arneson to gain her Master’s in only one year at the University of  Davis.  Maija prefers to isolate herself from the art world and work in her garage studio in Eldorado Hills, California.

In 1967, Maija lived in San Francisco in a house she helped paint every color that Dutch Boy produced and called her work “The Rainbow House.”  Maija would write to children in alphabet stick letters and they would send her their cherished drawings. Even the titles of her work make you smile.  Her work is in many private collections and in permanent Museum collections.
