Artist / Studio


Cavanaugh, Margaret Bouchez
Warren, Michigan

Birth Year: 1928

Death Year: 2008

Biography: Born in Detroit, she grew up in Ohio and received her art training from the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati.  Following her graduation, in 1950 she returned to Detroit to work for the Detroit Stained Glass Works, where she designed windows for many churches and other religious buildings. After the Detroit firm closed in 1970, she continued to design windows, sculpture, liturgical spaces and furnishings out of her home studio in Warren, MI. Several of her windows were featured on this web site (SEE BELOW). She created both faceted glass and leaded glass windows, screens and skylights. Her work has been installed in homes, churches, and hospitals in Michigan and other states and has been exhibited at the Detroit Institute of Arts, as well as at national conferences and galleries in the United States and Canada. Cavanaugh's art is linked to her religious faith. She pointed out, "The light and color of stained glass windows reflect the scriptures, which tell us that God is light."
