ABOUT P. MARGIS

I'm a professional artist living in California and create fine art oil paintings and drawings in the style of Abstract Representationalism and Idealistic Realism.

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’Keefe. I walked where they walked, and I saw what they saw.
