Margaret grew up in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago then went to Miami (of Ohio) University. Graduating with a degree in social work she worked with families and children in need before getting married and moving to St. Louis to raise her family. Artistically she began as a weaver and received her Masters of Fine Art in painting from Fontbonne University. Painting became her medium of expression and led her to founding Woodwalk Gallery in Door County in 1994. All her paintings begin in a real time and place but then she works and reworks the images with many layers until the paintings can be any time and any place. She is a recipient of the Door County Master Artist award, the Milwaukee Women’s Professional Dimensions Sacagewea Award, the Wisconsin Arts Association Trienial show in Madison and other awards and exhibits throughout the Midwest.
