Artist of the moment…….Margarete Bagshaw




Margarete Bagshaw was an American artist renown for her modernist interpretations of Native Art. Margarete Bagshaw was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the year 1964.

Her mother was Helen Hardin and her grandmother was also a famous artist, Pablita Velerde. Three generations of professional artists came from his family! I have already created posts for her mother and grandmother.

Margarete Bagshaw didn’t start to create her own artwork until she was in her mid- twenties.

For a few years the artist was based out of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Margarete Bagshaw was an awesome artist, creating her own voice despite coming from a family with such an artistic tradition. Its so sad that she passed away at such a young age.
