Margaret Simpson started making prints in Canada while attending the Alberta College of Art, where she was attracted to the beautiful line and subtle tonal qualities found in lithography and intaglio. Her work was primarily monochromatic until midway through graduate school in Boston, when she attended a summer workshop at Tamarind Institute in New Mexico that began a continuing exploration of color printing. After graduating and moving to Austin, TX in 1990, she has been teaching printmaking, initially at St. Edward’s University, and more recently at the University of Texas. In 1995, she and fellow artist Tom Druecker co-founded Slugfest Printmaking Workshop, a cooperative printmaking workshop where classes in printmaking are offered, studio time and printmaking equipment can be rented, and artists can make prints, books, and letterpress projects.
