Margaret studied Art and Design at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen.
She enjoys pushing the boundaries and is therefore never predictable as an artist and unlike many painters refuses to stick to any given subject. She therefore thrives on challenge, be it a seascape, landscape, wildlife, still life or abstract piece.
She has always been fascinated by the human form and by faces both young and old. In her figurative work she strives not merely to capture a likeness but a personality, a mood and a story to be told.
Margaret enjoys travelling throughout Scotland and abroad finding inspiration from the many moods and seasons of the land, sea and sky. With an interest in many different cultures and climates, her work is often colourful, vibrant and dramatic, provoking a strong reaction from the audience, and her tranquil scenes often capture a surprisingly peaceful, thought-provoking contrast.
