Margaret Hudson's love of nature and art came together as she began creating with clay the birds and other animals native to her Central California home and the nearby Sierra Nevada.
By 1980, Earth Arts Studio was established. Today over 600 designs are available, including sculptures, planters, fountains and large garden pieces. Margaret's commissioned works grace Valley schools, hospitals, libraries and parks.
In 1990 Margaret expanded into painting, creating giant flowers on canvas or paper, with oils, acrylics and oil pastels..She experiments with 3-Dimensional works in painting, printmaking and combinations of the two. Creating beautiful spaces is her passion.
She shares her art, philosophy and enthusiasm for life with 2000 school children a year who participate in field trips to her backyard, studio and gardens. She also speaks frequently to adult groups in the San Joaquin Valley.
Margaret Hudson's Earth Arts Studio celebrates the living creatures on our planet. Here Margaret Hudson's original designs are hand-formed by skilled artisans, of local clay and high-fired to a rich brown color that may be displayed inside or outdoors, these creatures ground us and remind us that we too, are of the Earth.
Next door, Art Park celebrates the beauty and wonder of nature through flower and nature paintings in the Margaret Hudson Gallery and neighborhood art activities in the garden. Drop in for a visit with Margaret and her friends.

"My art springs from a very deep love of nature and the earth. It is simple and direct. I hope each flower speaks directly to you as it did to me, both in the garden and in its painting. I celebrate each blossom in its rich early morning color and in the joyous rhythm of its dancing petals.I celebrate it in its opening and full bloom and also in its fading and brokenness. It is the cycle of life -- my life. It lifts me beyond myself into a oneness with all of life and the Eternal."
