Margaret Willis is a Utah-based artist who grew up in small towns in Arizona and Eastern Oregon where she spent her days roaming the hills and drawing her surroundings. She inherited her curiosity of the world from a family of world-traveling, nature-loving scientists, and her work is an extension of this curiosity. Margaret studied painting, sculpture, and printmaking at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, PA, and since then has had her work shown nationally and internationally. She accidentally moved to Utah while visiting her father after serving as an artist-in-residence for schools in Oregon and Utah and decided to transplant her life to the Wasatch Mountain Range. She began working for several non-profit art organizations, including the Salt Lake City Arts Council, the Sundance Film Festival, the Utah Arts Festival, and also served as the Interim Director of the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. She is currently the Art Director for Eva Carlston Academy, a residential treatment center in Salt Lake City, Utah where she teaches art and therapeutic arts, and encourages inquisitiveness and a love for creative expression to young women.
