Tom Rudd & Margo McCafferty (Artist-in-Residence, 2005)
About the Artists
Tom Rudd and Margo McCafferty were Isle Royale Artists-in-Residence from August 23rd to September 10th, 2005. After spending these three weeks on the island with their son, they decided to buy a house and move to Calumet, Michigan.
Tom was a sculptor but also a painter, printmaker, teacher, activist, public art administrator, curator, promoter, art collector, fly-fisherman and mentor. He grew up in northwestern Pennsylvania and had a few short-lived careers before deciding to follow his true calling in 1970. Tom passed away in 2018.
Margo is a painter and native of the Pacific Northwest. Before finding her true calling, she received a degree in political science from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon. Her drawings, prints and paintings are exhibited and collected internationally.
