Is artistic talent genetic or a matter of upbringing? Father-daughter painters Peter and Lisa Egeli say “Yes”
You probably know families with a run of talent. History is full of them, in both pure brainery and in hands-on and physical achievements, from sports to art, music to politics.
It makes you wonder. Does talent follow bloodlines?
Father Peter Egeli and daughter Lisa Egeil, a pair of Southern Maryland painters, are just two in a family deeply rooted in the arts.
Peter’s parents, Bjorn Egeli and Lois Baldwin Egeli, were both painters. All of their five children were artists.
