Historical Context:
Margaret's drawings are inspired by specific stories in mythology, though they often depart from the narrative and become illustrative of overall identity themes found in the texts. Much of her recent work has revolved around stories of saints and mythological figures recombined with the Tarot, resulting in unique reinterpretations of the Major Arcana. Recurring imagery fosters the sense that the stories are interconnected, inviting the viewer to further consider the world these beings inhabit.
