In Focus Podcast
I make art because from early on, I knew I wanted to be an artist…
Welcome artist Margo Volterra to In-Focus Podcast Number 68. She attended The Art Student’s League when she was very young. “The only kid surrounded by adults. Very intimidating,” she says.
Margo’s parents always encouraged her creativity and growing up in New York City certainly offered plenty of opportunities. She majored in painting at Boston University where she received her BFA. While there she worked with some very special professors who fostered the belief in pushing the envelope.
At the university, figure drawing was basic and on-going and, abstract painting was at its zenith. Margo lived in Fairhaven, Massachusetts for over 40 years and was a part of the Southcoast, Massachusetts art scene; exhibiting and teaching locally. She now lives and has her studio in Newton, Massachusetts.
Listen in on his conversation as The Artist Index’s host, Ron Fortier delves more into Margo’s life, work, and future ambitions. This episode was recorded with Zoom during the pandemic of 2020.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and the journey we are on is are still in the making and very organic.
