Margaret Larlham paints outdoors most often in Mission Trails Preserve, near her home in San Diego. The California landscape of distant mountains, dry stony washes and the diversity, fragility and hardiness of the chaparral and play of light at different times of the day and season changes constantly. She records these fleeting impressions in the drag, mark and layering of pastel on paper.
She is drawn to wilderness terrain. Her paintings record the textures, energy and surprises she finds in California coastal pastoral and other locations. She travels widely, always with supplies of pastel and paper at the ready, seizing opportunities to stop and paint - to experience deeply and record the impression and image of the day.
Born in Durban, South Africa, Margaret moved to San Diego with her husband, Peter, and children in 1986. While waiting for legal residency in the United States she returned studies of art, in the Fine Art Department at San Diego State University. She began exhibiting paintings in local galleries soon thereafter and her work has since found residence in many private collections.
She has a Master of Arts degree in Theatre from the University of Kwazulu-Natal and is currently tenured in the School of Theatre, Television, and Film at San Diego State University. Margaret is a constant painter. The activity of painting and exploring various media has punctuated her life in all its phases.
She is represented by Santa Ysabel Art Gallery.
We would appreciate having more art for the Storefront Gallery. This work will be up over the holidays.
We do NOT have a meeting in November and December. We sincerely hope you have Happy Holidays and lots of wonderful times with your family and friends!
Our next meeting will be on January 21, 2017.
Founded in 1954
