In our Rockville showroom: Margot Miller
I made the long drive out from Arlington, VA to Easton, MD to meet Margot. And boy was I happy when I got there. Margot is such a wonderful host, not just in her studio and home, but her whole town. She took me on a tour and told me a little bit about the history of the area.
Margot is clearly inspired by the different places she has lived and her environment. She grew up mainly in Ohio and New York, but currently resides in Maryland where she teaches translation, edits fiction and maintains a local art studio, Occasional Art.
You wouldn’t be able to tell from the stunning details in her artwork, but Margot started painting in 2007, when she was encouraged by a teacher in a drawing class. She did not know until that moment, that she would love to paint. She started with acrylics and then moved on to water-soluble oils (which tend to be odorless and easier to deal with).
Margot’s favorite subjects are usually landscapes with big weather. You will find many windy and stormy paintings in our Rockville showroom, or you can check out more of Margot’s artwork on her website. Also feel free to check out her web album that she posted.
