A Colorful Life 

Margaret has been making art most of her life.  She completed a formal art education later in life, but was always painting, crafting, weaving, and gardening while raising her 4 children in Michigan. Upon moving to North Carolina Margaret went back to school and received her Art Education degree from Meredith College. She taught high school art classes in the Wake county School system, wine and paint classes for adults in the evening, as well as Continuing Education classes for Wake County and has loved the creativity expressed by her students!

About Her Work

Given her history as an art educator Margaret enjoys creating in a wide variety of mediums and subject matters. She is currently working primarily in Acrylics and Watercolors. Floral paintings feature predominatly in her work but she also paints landscapes, home portraits, trucks and animals, people, garden tools… whatever catches her interest! She takes work on commission and holds private student classes in her home.

Professional Associations

Margaret has been a member of the National and North Carolina Art Education Associations, the Pastel Society of NC, the Visual Art Exchange of Raleigh, and a resident artist of Sunflower Studio and Gallery. She is currently a member of the Wake Forest Guild of Artists and a docent at the NCMA. She has participated in many community art events including: the United Arts campaign, Meredith College teacher exhibits, the Duke Raleigh Hospital show on Diversity, the Heart of the Artist Community Arts Festival, NC State Fair professional artist competitions, and the Wake Forest Area Artists tour.
