the early 1980's, the work of Margaret
Warfield has involved the creation of works on canvas and paper.
Initially her work reflected images reminiscent of her childhood,
i.e., landscapes of the hills of Tennessee. Her chosen medium, at
that time, was oil paints and occasionally pastels. Over the years,
however, she switched to acrylic paints, enjoying the ease of
covering a surface quickly with vibrant opaque colors. In the early
1990’s she began to paint scenes of African tribesmen and women.
This was a result of many trips to book stores and libraries where
she researched and studied facets of African culture. During this
time she also re-discovered her love of cloth and her wish to create
flowing fabrics, on the bodies of her images. Contact
