Margaret is a native of Spartanburg, SC. She earned the MFA in painting from Winthrop University 1991, and BA in art from Limestone College 1987. She has worked as a professional and entrepreneur, with sole proprietorship of both bricks and mortar and consulting businesses. She is a resident of Buffalo, WY at the base of the Big Horn Mountains where she collects rocks discerningly and burns incense.
Margaret believes that the journey towards a more peaceful and compassionate society begins from within, rooted in the paradigms of the quantum process. She asserts that childhood and ancestral trauma is at the core of virtually all relationship and societal tensions and can be healed through paradigms of responsive partnership and connection with children, and by self-partnering ourselves as adults.
Margaret writes about aspects of spiraling out in personal and spiritual evolution while raising her son in partnership as a self-directed, whole life learner without school. Her writing has been published by Life Learning Magazine and Mother Support News for the World Association of Breastfeeding Action. She offers unique fine art prints of her original paintings and photos for discerning collectors that make a statement and promote reflection, defined by intuitive symbolism, abstraction, and a dynamic process.
I embrace that art is life, and life is art, given the canon of quantum reality that connections are everything. Exponential concepts motivate me to create from a space of intrinsic self-reflection.
My work is the visual product of a lifelong spiritual journey. Dynamic aspects of this journey are recorded through the interrelationships of automatic action challenged by meditated visual elements. This process is an authentic representation of an intuitive self-reflection that centrifuges out certain measures of morality and experience, awareness, and intention.
Recurring symbols have included wounds, scars, halos, nests, sacred hearts, flames, circles, repetitive marks, squares, the egg, hot spots of illumination, and other gestures that convey way points in my thoughts and feelings as they make their way into visual form.
