Grape Queen by Margaret White


Artwork Description

Margaret White's "Grape Queen" showcases her mixed media talents in both the image and the frame.

"Grape Queen" is 29 inches wide by 41 inches high and sells for $2,800. The frame is wood with gold accorations and is hand-textured matte.

Margaret White remembers, as a child, being aware that her art looked "better" than the other students. She attended the Detroit Public Schools in the 1950s and early '60s and said the arts were embraced through after-school and weekend classes. She was nominated to attend Cass Technical High School, where she majored in art. "It was an amazing experience," she says.

Margaret has a BFA and MA from Michigan State University and also studied printmaking at Wayne State University in printmaking. She taught school and spent 30 years teaching high school drawing in Southfield, Mich. "If you REALLY want to learn something, teach it for five hours a day for years," she says.

She also has experience in art history, many media and a bevy of techniques.

She's married to fellow Fine Art Mart artist Bill White, an oil painter. They have a retirement home on Torch Lake and have been creating in their studios there since 1996. Their work is shown at five Michigan galleries.

"To be an artist all my life has brought me so much joy and fulfillment," Margaret says. "My goal is to keep at it until I keel over."
