Classically trained Margaret Losinski was born in Edmonton, Canada, and graduated with a major in sculpture from the Alberta College of Art, in Calgary, Canada. A resident of Houston since 1982, she has served as a consulting curator at The Jung Center and as a visiting artist/adjunct professor until being named Artist Affiliate at the College of Arts and Humanities, Houston Baptist University in 2009.
Her numerous bronze bas-relief portrait commissions for the Texas Medical Center and the University of Houston’s Hilton College’s Hospitality Industry Hall of Fame are installed on those campuses and the larger-than-life relief portrait commission of Dr. Denton Cooley was installed at the Texas Heart Institute’s new plaza developed in his honor in 2008.
One ongoing project is a series of relief portraits honoring Houston artists Bert Long, Virgil Grotfeldt, Lucas Johnson, Sharon Kopriva, Richard Stout and James Surls, among others. In addition to portraiture, she explores the figure primarily through horse and human forms, working in bronze and hollow-form mixed media. She presently utilizes digital photography to create series of works of macro images exploring textures and patterns found in nature.
