Margaret Abramshe

Artist Margaret Abramshe describes her work as:

“A healing process. When I am in my studio creating, I allow myself to process difficult issues through art and my progress working toward emotional balance. I reflect on my path toward being at peace with my past and with myself. My work is a portrait of my own inner journey. Portraits of family members and people in meditation are my primary subject matter. My current focus on family photographs has provided me with an immediate subtext rich with inspiration.

Margaret Abramshe was born in Honolulu Hawaii in 1959 to family of academics. She studied for her BFA at the University of Colorado at Boulder, received a degree in Art Education from Florida International University and a Master’s in Fine Art from the University of Northern Colorado. She spent her career as public school educator, a mentor teacher, wrote numerous grants and was part of district wide curriculum writing teams in Jefferson County Colorado.

Since retiring, Margaret has devoted her time to being studio artist working as an art quilter. She is regional representative for the Studio Art Quilts associates. In the past three years Margaret’s art quilts have been included in numerous local, national and international shows. Recently her work was included in “Diaspora: Stories of Migration” at the Textile Museum at Georgetown University in Washington DC. Her work is also included in “Art=Quilt=Art” at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center, Auburn NY and in “Turmoil” a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Studio Art Quilt Associated.
