Peggi Wolfe (Wolfepaw}

My name is Peggi Wolfe and I'm known in the fractal art world as Wolfepaw. I live in Natchez, MS with five cats and a truly wonderful dog. My beloved husband of almost 25 years, Chris, died of lung and brain cancer in early 2015. I was born and raised in New Orleans, but, like so many others, my home in New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when I was 55 years old. We had evacuated to Natchez, MS before the storm and when we saw our house had been flooded to the roof, we decided to stay in Natchez. I was working at Tulane University Health Sciences Center when the hurricane struck and I continued to work at Tulane in New Orleans for a little over 3 more years (drove to New Orleans on Monday, spent the week in NO, drove back to Natchez on Friday for the weekend). I have been a medical research scientist for 35 years, most spent at Tulane, the last 9 years of it as a faculty member doing research with adult bone marrow stem cells.Now, bI am a Global Programs Specialist at Alcorn State University in MS. I work a lot now with computers and digital graphics, grant writing, and videoconferencing as it relates to international education, experiential learning and Study Abroad.

I have been a photography nut for years and I really got into digital photography. Through digital photography, I learned a bit about digital graphic editing. After tinkering with that for a few years, mostly just for my own enjoyment, I got into fractal art. (Basically, all forms in nature are fractals). I had first discovered fractals back in the mid 1990s. I even tried one of the free software programs available at the time, but it was an alien interface and I had no idea what I was doing, so I promptly forgot about fractaling?until September of 2008. Somehow, I got hooked on them again and downloaded all the free fractal generating software I could find. Well, needless to say, I learned a bit more on how to use the software and I have been fractaling my fool head off ever since!! It?s a wonderful art form of infinite variety, incredible colors and marvelous lighting, and it?s a lot of fun to do.
