The word 'variety' sums up this artist, of subject matter, medium, style and technique, perhaps a product of an isolated 'use your imagination and make do with what you've got' upbringing on a remote Qld cattle and sheep station.
That childhood in the drought stricken, dinosaur country of outback Winton, is a stark contrast to the lush green mountain rainforests of the stunning Samford Valley, where Margaret has lived for 15+ years, and now teaches Art privately, regularly exhibiting her work at Samford Art and Therapy Gallery.
Daughter of a returned serviceman with untreated PTSD Margaret's passion for Art's use as a healing medium for mental health, and her experiences working as a Transpersonal Art Therapist, is evident in some works whereby she has tried to create a visual of client narratives to help communicate an emotional state.
After attending boarding school for 3 years (often departing the west in 40 degree heat, and arriving in Warwick 24 hours later to sub zero temperatures) Margaret went on to become a secondary school Art teacher. Later studies included Business, Psychology, and Transpersonal Art Therapy.
Margaret often writes poetry, personal reflections about the artwork, to accompany her images. (copies available to purchasers by request to info@samfordartand therapy.com.au)
In recent years, she has submitted multiple prize winning entries in both Samford and Pine Rivers Art Shows.
Margaret believes that “ Art always adds colour, magic, excitement and hope to our lives and our homes, at least in our imagination, and every home can do with some of that on the walls.”
About her classes she informs us that "Most people come to my classes to 'get out of their own headspace for awhile' and connect with others while they play with art materials or add some creative expression to their lives, not because they want to be Michelangelo." "The beauty of Art is that it's equally enjoyable to the viewer and the creator."
Margaret also welcomes enquiries for commissions of portraits, pets and most subjects.
