Paper ArtMargaret Goodward

 “ Her images reflect on natural growth and human growth with artistic interests in positive-negative space, radial forms, and subtle embossed details. “

Margaret was the oldest of seven children whose father thought if you were bored you’d best go find something to do.

She made paper fans, paper kites, paper puppets, and, (surprise!)…..paper!
In college, she did collagraph embossing, mono-printing, and…..papermaking! She is now old enough to use sharp tools to make multilayered paper bas reliefs in bright colors with intricate details. Her images reflect on natural growth and human growth with artistic interests in positive-negative space, radial forms, and subtle embossed details that reward those who come to look up close.

Here are some samples from her Garlands of Quotes

Children and Parents:
“One curious thing about growing up is that you don’t only move forward in time; you move backward  as well, as pieces of your
 parents’ and grandparents’ lives come to you.” Phillip Pullman
“When a child is locked in the bathroom with water
running and he says he’s doing nothing, but the dog is
 barking, call 911.” Erma Bombeck
“The guys who fear becoming fathers don’t understand that fathering is not something that perfect men do, but something that perfects the man. The end product of child raising is not the child, but the parent.” Frank Pittman
“Little League baseball is a very good thing because it
keeps the parents off the streets.” Yogi Berra
