La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

Margaret Cary Colarelli was born in Illinois, but grew up in Brooklyn, New York and moved to Michigan about 30 years ago. The culture of the city where she roamed the museums of New York, and the beauty of the rural Michigan landscape have combined in her artistic sensibility. She has been active in art since childhood, and was introduced to figurative drawing and painting mainly in charcoal and oil through scholarship classes at Pratt Institute, and at the Brooklyn Museum Art School where she was taught for two years by Francis Cunningham in a lineage leading back to William Merritt Chase.
