Margaret Kearney

Margaret Kearney is an artist, designer, and teacher. Her work in fabric, paint, and moments for interaction seeks to create opportunities for shared experience and imagination. Her work is both despondent about the unjust realities of the present and joyful about the possibility for people to live their best lives when given the right chances to succeed. She takes all the beauty and the mess of living and stews it together to see what can come out, unflinchingly hoping for the best.

She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, where she earned a BFA in Textile Design. Margaret lives in Philadelphia, PA where she is a teaching artist and lead artist with Mural Arts Philadelphia.
