Margaret Dean is a landscape painter and sketch artist based in Ventura County, California where she lives with her husband and 3 children. Her lifelong passion for art began when she first learned to use a pencil as a toddler. Very early in life, her talent for creating accurate fine detail became apparent. Throughout her childhood she developed her skills through many hours of daily practice. Her earlier works consisted mainly of graphite sketches of animals and people.
During her 20’s Margaret battled multiple bouts of depression which halted her progress entirely. At age 27, she returned to her art with passion, determined to make it into a career. She has spent the last year and a half further developing her drawing skills as well as becoming a landscape painter. She currently spends most of her time creating original artwork and working on commissions.
