Margo’s whimsical, captivating images frequently appear in the magazine, and Margo also shares their* artistry through teaching. Serious heath issues in recent months have prevented Margo from teaching, but they’re now feeling well enough to start up again. In response to the support given around their illness, Margo is offering free Gratitude Art Classes at the Women’s Cancer Resource Center and Laurel Bookstore. Visit their website for class details and read Margo’s story about Luz Calvo and Catrióna Rueda Esquibel, authors of Decolonize Your Diet, who are depicted on our Spring issue cover.
