Margaret Parsons

Margaret Parsons is an artist and arts educator from New Orleans, LA. Her drawing and sculpting practice is a means of transcribing the lines of her own body language. Inspired by Zen Buddhist calligraphy, her works are the material results of movement: forms of tension, direction, and release.
