Margaret Myers

Bio

Myers received her B.A. from Augustana College as well as an M.S.W from the University of Illinois and an M.L.S. from Rutgers University.  Although she does not have any formal fine arts educational background, she has enjoyed taking various arts workshops in the communities where she has lived in Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, and now in retirement through the Ink Shop in Ithaca, New York.

Statement

I find that printmaking satisfies a creative urge in me more than any other type of art medium.  There are so many different techniques to learn and use, including a mixed media approach.  I like the element of surprise involved in pulling a first proof.  One can usualy rework plates to gain a more satisfying image if desired.  It's fun to experiment with various shapes and the many beautiful ink colors.  I find inspiration in nature.
