Teachers always wrote home to Margaret’s mom, saying how talented she was at drawing. After college Margaret illustrated for a military magazine, and was quite the duck out of water during those years, her specialty not so much military weapons systems, as it was children’s illustration.
Eventually Margaret got a job with National Wildlife Federation, helping design, illustrate, and sometimes write for their children’s magazine for five years. She now designs for a non-profit, illustrating, designing and writing freelance occasionally, once winning Graphics Magazine’s gold award for logo design. When not working, she is winning blue ribbons in woodcarving competitions, and trying her hand at glass blowing and bronze sculpture.
