Exhibit: March 23 – April 23, 2016
Margaret Bucholz was born in Japan and lived there 9 years. She picked up her love for art from her mother, who is a Japanese Ikebana (flower arranging) master and an oil painter. From 9 years of age until age 21, she lived in Hawaii, where she picked up her love for bright colors and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from University of Hawaii. Now a long-time resident of Wheaton, because she has fallen in love with the changing seasons and the vivid fall colors, she does not plan on moving anywhere else soon.
Many of her watercolor pieces hang in private collections. To further her skills, she has taken many workshops at The Clearing and Dillman’s Resort from many well-known artists. In the past three years, she has studied colored pencil at Beech Tree Studios.
Margaret is currently the Vice President of the Addison Art Guild and teaches private watercolor, acrylics and color pencil classes. Commissioned portraits from photos of pets or people are available upon request as well as other subjects.
“There is nothing I would rather do than create art and be in the moment of creating beauty which is all around us,” she says.
