Thanks to family and friends who came to celebrate with me at the Artist Reception yesterday! Anybody who missed the reception can still come see my work through the end of September at the Chickasaw Nation Welcome Center just off I-35 at the Davis/Sulphur exit. It is a really nice facility and I was impressed with the number of travelers who stopped by.
Margaret A. Dillard
A proud member of the Chickasaw tribe, I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I studied art at Moore High School, The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, Rose State College and the University of Central Oklahoma. Among my mentors and instructors I include Bert Seabourn, Glenn Thomas and Carol Armstrong.
My work leans heavily to the side of realism with tones of impressionism or expressionism in some areas.
I strive to capture the beauty of God’s world in all my work. I am intrigued by the minute differences that make each person unique and at the same time the things that unify us as human beings. The slight drop of an eyelid or a shoulder can convey emotions that are common to us all. I especially love trying to capture the openness of children's expressions. I'm fascinated with the fleeting moment and excited by the challenge of capturing not just a likeness but an atmosphere or feeling.
