Margaret (Mac) Schueppert received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Alverno College in 1971. Away from the art world she focused on raising a family for the next 30 years. After moving to Door County Wisconsin, she returned to making art in 2003.
Initially a watercolorist, in 2007 her focus turned to soft pastel. In 2009 she was invited to join a small group of women who paint en plein air during the warmer months. Winter is devoted to studio time working in a more experimental mode and larger format. She has studied with nationally recognized artists Colette Odya Smith, W Truman Hosner, Marla Bagetta, Christine Debrosky, and Bonnie Paruch.
Her work is displayed in hospital and private collections throughout the United States, the Teaching Collection of the Trout Museum in Appleton, WI, and the Permanent Collection of the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay, WI. She holds memberships with the Wisconsin Pastel Artists, Great Lakes Pastel Society, and Pastel Society of America.
