Margaret and her husband, also an artist, reside in Michigan. They are both retired art teachers. Margaret’s subject matter includes the human figure and face, flowers, birds, insects, vegetables, rich pattern and jewelry. Margaret wants each piece to have the ‘feel’ of an icon or altarpiece without the religious subject matter. Her use of gold leaf and the arched form suggest a reverence to the viewer. Margaret prefers oil pastel as her media choice and uses the techniques of incising or shaving with a knife to attain various details and textures. Margaret stated, “It continually surprises and delights me that no matter how delicate the filigree or jewel-encrusted the crown, the organic part of an image is always the most glorious…another contrast as man-made and God-made vie for attention”.
