Mars

Mars

Margaret Harper Jenkins (known as Mars by close friends and family) is a Cleveland-based creative who dabbles in many different outlets of expression. Classically trained in illustration and sculpture, Mars majored in studio art with a minor in psychology and a pre-certificate in art therapy at Cleveland State University during the year 2019. After graduation, Mars began teaching acrylic painting classes with Painting with a Twist while also working as a freelance makeup artist. Creating work that fosters child-like joy, but through story-telling and intentionality; Mars's artwork is a constant unfurling; shedding layers around her soul to reach an authentic and expressive core, while being honest with that essence whether it be dark and brooding or light and cheery. The driving force behind her professional and artistic pursuits is to foster meaningful and impactful relationships with individuals and communities- specifically through the promotion of the arts. Advocacy and storytelling are at the core of her work. Mars’s philosophy remains tied to the belief that education of the arts is a right, not a privilege- that everyone should have access to art and the materials to create it. Mars believes art is the catalyst for amplifying voices and uniting communities
