About artist Margaret Owen
I am Margaret Owen, an artist living in Providence, RI. I grapple with a wide variety of subject matter in oil paint and watercolor, working in the studio and on-the-spot, just about anywhere. I received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art with a concentration in painting. I am trained in traditional methods and spent most of my artistic life working in oil in the studio. But in 2011 I began using watercolor for its portability and now watercolor sketching has become a vital part of my art making practice, allowing me to connect with my creativity and with other artists on a daily basis, regardless of the slings and arrows of what Jon Kabat-Zinn calls "full catastrophe living".
In 2009 I began teaching painting and drawing in group settings and privately. That collaboration with other artists, of all experience levels from brand-new to professional, immediately became a well-spring of both inspiration and comfort. I now enjoy a combination of making and teaching art with a focus on drawing and painting.

I'll post shows to the Calendar page of this website.
I share a sketching blog with Elizabeth Hutchinson, moveable paintbox.
