Last year I was fortunate enough to have my artwork featured in the September 24 edition of Discover Oklahoma Magazine! It was a little intimidating but really fun process and the interviewer Lisanne Anderson really made it a pleasure.

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.
