My name is Margret Lohr also known as Margret Johnson or Albright but go by Maggie
Born in TX raised in KY and living in AR, I have loved drawing and painting as long as I can remember. I was amazed at the box of crayons I would receive for school and fell in love with the colors within them and around me.
I absorb myself in these colors so my art is very characteristic. I am a self-taught painter who has no formal education but uses many mediums such as pencil, acrylic and oil paint, watercolor, and pastel. I portray an arrangement of colors in the spectrum in most of my works.
In my younger years (ALBRIGHT) I did many fantasy works such as gargoyles and dragons absorbing myself in that world.
As JOHNSON I focused more on landscapes and nature with some still life, understudying with Eva Haley who was very patient with me and taught me so much about concepts, technique, color mixing and layout.
My art varies in wide ranges of styles and subjects. For me it’s a great stress reliever and escape from the day to day monotony. I also dapple in beadwork and jewelry making and those pieces can be found at the Spring River Art Gallery
As a newlywed (LOHR) I look forward to seeing and encompassing all I’ve learned as a self-taught artist and creating more works for others to enjoy as much I do
