Portrait of Watercolor Artist – Margaret Modjeski
By Betsy Hecht Cramb
Margaret Modjeski says she had fallen in love with watercolor art as a teenager in Chicago, where she babysat for several artists’ children. She saved up much of her babysitting money and bought her first watercolor painting with some of her savings. She knew then she wanted to learn how to paint with watercolors.
After retiring as an educator, Margaret had time to pursue her dream to become a watercolor artist. Margaret describes herself as determined. In the pictures she paints, you can see some of her determination. Margaret’s paintings are meant to be uplifting and positive. People tell her they feel happy when they see her work.
She paints her floral paintings from real flowers rather than from photographs of flowers whenever she can. She likes to paint from her heart and Margaret says she feels a real sense of peace when she is painting.
Margaret has had watercolor training at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center where she continues to take classes from Carol Rosefelt, an instructor who is Margaret’s mentor. Carol inspires her to explore her creativity.
She also reads art books, watches art videos and loves to see talented watercolorists, such as Sterling Edwards. Margaret is a member of the Tarpon Springs Art Association, the Creative Artist Guild and the Crystal Beach Art Group.
