Margaret is a local artist currently living in Galt, CA. Her love for art started as a young child where she won awards starting in elementary school for her pencil sketches of the great Live Oaks trees. Her first award came at the age of eight when one of her sketches was published in the local Farmers magazine.
She is self-taught but took art education whenever she could fit a class into her busy schedule. She received her graduate degree at the University of San Francisco while maintaining a fulltime job and raising her family.
Margaret has painted for years using both oils and acrylics. She has also used a variety of mediums such as pastels, collage, ceramics, fabric art, pen sketching and some watercolors. Her style is bright colors, is varied and detailed and she is still in the process of determining in which medium and genre she prefers to work.
Her work has been on display at the Elk Grove Fines Arts Center, and The Tong Gallery in Walnut Grove. She is a member of the Elk Grove Fine Art Center (EGFAC), the past President of The Elk Grove Artists (EGA)and is a member of the Northern California Artists (NCA).
