About Margaret

Artist's Statement

I travel the world and my own community, recording what I see.

My training began with black-and-white photography, developing my own film, and that physical connection with the materials created a connection to my work. Years later when I took time off from my job to dedicate myself full-time to studying art, that immersion without distraction created that same sense of a connection not only to my work, but also to the places that I seek to represent.

I hope to share these moments with you.



Education

Margaret attended Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, Washington where she studied drawing and painting part-time for several years before enrolling in Gary Faigin's still life atelier. She also has a Master's degree in Educational Technology and Information Science and a Bachelor's in Broadcast Production. She currently lives and works in Monterey, California.
