Margaret Kincaid has been an art enthusiast since childhood. Her parents took the kids to the 1950s Seattle Art Museum in Volunteer Park. She explored the collections with wide eyed appreciation for the paintings and sculptures.
In 1970, Margaret worked with an amazing weaving instructor who taught her to focus on the joy of textiles. She wove for pleasure and profit for the next 20 years. During that time she also studied life drawing, architectural drafting and design.
After working a few years as a draftsman, she looked for a more creative outlet.
Her love of architecture and interior design led her to start her own business of decorative painting and color consulting. In the following 18 years, she advised and painted for many satisfied customers. What an opportunity for expression and growth!
After retiring from climbing up and down ladders, Margaret relaxed into drawing and painting for pleasure as well as participating in life drawing groups.
Margaret now lives with her husband, Larry, in Winlock, Wash., surrounded by fields, trees and wide-open skies. Her artistic practice includes acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil work and filling sketchbooks. She is an avid reader, curious to learn and explore new ideas in art history and art techniques. Life is good!
