Margaret Bernstein


Margaret Bernstein was meandering through a profession of words, interviews and teenagers when, on a whim, she fell suddenly into experimenting with paints and brushes in Las Cruces. “Was it the dazzle of the sun, the desert, the sky so bright, bright after years of misty days, or just a burst of fleeting energy that caught me by surprise,” she said. Taking inspiration from books, teachers, talks, Impressionist painters, but mostly friends, the mountains – their plants and trees, a family legacy and the paint itself, she takes the plunge into each piece, longing for work that pique's someone's, anyone's, imagination, curiosity, emotion.
