Margaret creates sculpture, vessels and wall art incorporating natural patterns, shapes, and movements. These elements develop into a visual language of form and emotions.
Natural processes simultaneously demonstrate building while deconstructing; tending while sabotaging; peace and conflict. Nature navigates a delicate and difficult balance in nurturing and growth.
Margaret grew up in Annandale, VA where her creativity was encouraged, despite the damaging effects to her parent’s home. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University (BFA '99) with a focus in sculpture, she designed and built handmade furniture, exhibiting nationally at a variety of galleries and craft shows.
Recent years focused on raising twin girls has altered Margaret’s focus away from functional work. This sculptural work incorporates a variety of materials including polymer clay, wood, copper, pewter, wire, and paint.
