Official bio + media kit.

Margaret Welty is that rare combination of artist and mentor who can coach even the best, yet humbly guide the novice into competence and confidence.
Mark Bryan, co-author of The Artist's Way at Work
[Margaret’s instruction] made me feel very excited, and able to accept myself through art. This means freedom of expression for me and to let go of things I cannot control... watercolor is such a release!
— Emily Brooks, pre-teacher education college student
