Margaret Garrett (born 1965) was born in North Carolina and raised in Pennsylvania. She grew up training to be a dancer and went on to dance with the Pennsylvania and Cleveland Ballet Companies. In her early twenties, she discovered painting, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color, and switched her focus to visual art. Her artistic practice includes painting, printmaking, collage, and video work. Garrett’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States including Danese/Corey, the Flag Art Foundation, Birnam Wood, the Parrish Art Museum and is held in numerous private and corporate collections in the United States and Europe.
