Margot R Graham was raised in the Bay Area of California. Growing up in a suburban community near the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Her father, Jack Rosengren, was a renowned nuclear physicist, which influence her interests in mathematics and abstraction. She went on to receive a BA in Art Practice at UC Berkeley where she studied with established Bay Area figurative painter Joan Brown and colorist Donald Kaufman…to name a few. In 1979 she moved to New York City to reinvent her art practice and began showing in the East Village as well as the Queens Museum for “up & coming” artists.
After almost a decade, Margot returned to San Francisco to start a family and build a home, which revitalized her interest in architecture and design. The process of designing the home alongside contemporary architects became an artistic outlet and redefined her relationship with painting. She now works out of her studio at the ICB Building in Sausalito, CA.
