    Margaret Kilgallen was a fervent surfer and banjo player...-many of the women who appeared in her work were depicted doing one or the other. Her early experiences as a librarian and bookbinder combined with her love of “old-time music” and women musicians, especially Matokie Slaughter contributed to her images. Primarily recognized for painting directly on the wall—mostly outdoors, mostly ‘noncommissioned’ (graffiti). Kilgallen also created room-size murals shown at the Drawing Center in 1997 and Deitch Projects in 1999. She lived in San Francisco with her husband, Barry McGee. She gave birth to their daughter on June, 7, 2001 and died less than a month later from breast cancer.
