Born in San Antonio, Texas, Margie enjoyed drawing in high school. Margie’s education and career then took her in a different direction. Margie worked for a federal government law enforcement agency for many years and then opened her own business in the investigation field. In 2013, Margie began painting with watercolors. Mainly a studio painter, she also loves to paint outdoors (en plein air). Her travels have afforded her the opportunity to paint in Telluride, CO, Port Angeles, WA and an amazing trip that had her painting for ten days in the Grand Canyon. Combining her love of travel and painting, Margie is continually looking for a way to express herself through her art. Her focus is to show the contrast between light and shadows in a vibrant format.
Classical artists John Singer Sargent, and Winslow Homer as well as contemporary watercolorists Joseph Zbukvic, and Andy Evansen influence her.
