ABOUT P. MARGIS

I'm a professional artist living in California and create fine art oil paintings in the styles of NeoSurrealism and NeoPrecisionism.

I've been an artist and painter my entire life. However, I started to build my career in art while attending art college as a sculpture major. I went on to work as a ceramicist in Belgium and travelled to Paris, London and Rome to explore the art world. Later on I developed careers where I studied color, design and photography. In 2013 I moved back into painting and drawing full time.

I spent my early summers at Oak Lawn in the same house on Lake George that Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz lived. Like Georgia’s paintings, I was deeply inspired by the lake, islands and surrounding oak trees and see these as my foundational inspiration. At an early age I walked the same halls and grounds as Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe. I walked where they walked, and I saw what they saw.
