Margaret H. Webster - Artist

Margaret Webster is an award winning artist who works primarily in watercolor, and in pen and ink - often using them in combination. She began studying art by attending Saturday programs for children at the Philadelphia College of Art. Margaret received her Bachelors in Fine Arts from the Philadelphia College of Art and her Masters from Temple University (Tyler School of Art). She has been an art instructor of adults and children. Her first award was received from the Gimbel Foundation when she was fifteen. The subject matter of the woodcut was a landscape, with emphasis on an oak tree. Landscapes continue to be one of Margaret's favorite subjects. Recent paintings often include boats or architectural elements. Her work is in many private and corporate collections.

Featured Painting:

The Kirkin' of the Tartan

"The Kirkin' of the Tartan" is held annually at Historic Christ Church in Irvington, Virginia.  It is a moving and colorful ceremony.  One of the reasons that I painted the pipers was to see if I could still capture a likeness.  Thankfully, everyone agreed that they would know the pipers anywhere.

"I enjoy watching people's faces when they see a painting for the first time. It seems to me that an artist's work can only give real pleasure to those in whom it arouses an awareness of beauty similar to their own perception. Response to artwork is such a personal thing. I am delighted when my work can transport you to another place or time or lead you to recall a certain feeling - perhaps the memory of a first love or the warmth of a spring day."
