Statement

Margaret lives on a ranch near Glen Rose, Texas. Originally hailing from a small ranching community in northwestern Colorado, she has been around horses most of her life. After retiring from the pharmaceutical industry in 2008, she devoted herself to a year of studying portraiture under sculptor Art Blevins. After that, she focused on figurative art, studying under master sculptors such as Lincoln Fox, Rod Zulo, and Bruno Lucchesi at Scottsdale Artist's School.

  

She works with both water- and oil-based clays, and is interested in creating realistic figures of the athletic human form, horses and other animals. She also works with earthenware clay to produce three-dimensional pictures on tile. 

Her work has been accepted into juried competitions such as the Bosque Art Classic with Judge Tony Altermann, and the Art Center of Estes Park’s “Lines into Shapes” show. She is an Associate member of The National Sculpture Society, and a member of Texas Artists Coalition.

Her next show is scheduled for August 11, 2012 at LongCoat Fine Art Gallery, Ruidoso, New Mexico. She will also have her works displayed at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center for the month of November, 2012, with the opening reception on November 9.
