Biography

With a Master's degree in Fine Arts from Catholic University, Sister Margaret Beaudette, S.C. has been in the art field for more than thirty years, teaching art and creating her own sculpture.

Today, her works can be seen across the United States in hospitals, churches, shrines and at institutions such as DePaul University. In addition, she has works located in Lourdes, France, Canada, Bermuda, Haiti, and South Korea.

Her style is uniquely her own, emphasizing traditional figurative work with a clarity of line and form. No matter the figure sculpted, Sister Margaret's work shows an incarnational spirituality - God's love and compassion.

Sister Margaret entered the Sisters of Charity of New York in 1947. For seventeen years, she was an Associate Professor of Art at Elizabeth Seton College in Yonkers.

She has created several sculptures of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. In 1987, she left teaching to devote herself to full-time sculpturing at DePaul Sculpture Studio at Mount St. Vincent in the Bronx. For more information, visit the DePaul Sculpture Studio Virtual Tour.

Sister Margaret creates mostly large sculptures of religious figures that are cast into bronze, bonded bronze or fiberglass. In addition, she completed a 9' St. Elizabeth Seton in granite in 1986.

She shows the compassion of Christ in her figures, and renders them in a style, though figurative, that has a universal appeal.

Sister Margaret has been the recipient of the J. Dudley Diggs Award for sculpture, and was a founding member and president of the Catholic Artists of the 80s.

The designer of over 55 major pieces of work in her distinguished career, Sister Margaret continues to develop sculptures that show a humanness and gentleness of spirit that speak of God's presence.
