Captive Head & other images available in prints on paper or canvas.
“No surprise really. The artist not only comes from a journalism background, she’s a visual artist in the bargain. Telling stories is natural to her, whatever the medium. The film Captive Head Breaks Out is based on a symbolic being called Captive Head…given that one character from her personal mythology has taken to the silver screen, one wonders if others will. H Margret, like a modern Homer, perhaps has been creating a new epic without realizing it.” Craig Smith, Santa Fe New Mexican Pasatiempo
My art career began in the late 1970’s. My jobs came and went. Since I didn’t have graphic skills, I painted canvases. I showed at the Schubert Gallery in Albany, Oregon, in the 1980’s and Shirley Coffin was a key mentor. I owe much to her and her artist group. Seattle was my next stop…big city. Lots of shows, not many sales. Worked briefly for Dale Chihuly, the famous glass artist, at the Boathouse. Three years later I landed in Santa Fe, NM. I had no idea it was a world-class art market. I worked & lived on Canyon Road for 10 years. Captive Head Breaks Out was made there. The American Pictures seem out of date; they were painted in 1992. The flag series was painted in 2020 and 2022.
