Margaret Oomen, a rural physician and textile artist, has been a gatherer and maker of things for as far back as she can remember. Aside from a spinning and printmaking class, she is completely self-taught. She draws her inspiration from her treasure- hunting family especially her father a mathematician and electrical engineer, her scientific (biochemistry and synthetic organic chemistry) and medical backgrounds, and her great respect and love of the natural world. Her work can be found at resurrectionfern.ca. She lives in Ontario with her husband, four children, three cats and a snail named fern.
