Featured Artist

Margaret Bussey

Margaret Bussey

Margaret Bussey is a printmaker who regards printmaking as an extension of drawing and painting. She enjoys working from observation and onsite, from the natural and human world. Seeing into the emotional and physical structure of our world is a powerful experience for her and the work is evidence of that experience. Teaching at the college level, and in the studio offers another way to share that experience. Inquire about instruction in basic printmaking, watercolor, or life drawing.
