Artist

Margaret Withers- Artist

Brooklyn, NY

I paint neo-abstract surreal paintings that play on our collective perception of the images of home and our thoughts on communication.

The mind is not a vessel that needs filling, but wood that needs igniting — no more — and then it motivates one towards originality and instills the desire for truth. Plutarch
Interests

Art and poetry that baffles me and puts my mind into a new state of thinking and seeing where I feel uncertain.

Being a full time artist which would involve making a living solely from painting, teaching creativity and trust in one's intuition.
