Margaret has been painting for over 30 years in various mediums including watercolours, pastels, oil and most recently in acrylic. Growing up on a farm near Indian Head and inspired by the beauty of snow, clouds and prairie landscapes, her work focuses on rural Saskatchewan and the Qu’Appelle Valley. Many of her paintings capture the warmth from winter vacations spent on the Mexican Pacific Coast. She has been fortunate to develop her skills by taking workshops from several renowned artists including master painters Stephen Quiller (Colorado) and Zhong Yang Huang (Regina), Wee Lee (Alberta); others including Michael O’Toole (acrylic, B.C), Jack Reid (watercolour, Ontario), Blu Smith (Victoria, B.C.), Riffat Hussain (watercolour, Regina), Jose Baldi (acrylic, Mexico). Over the years, Margaret has participated in many group art shows and belonged to local guilds, the most recent being the Prairie Artists Guild. She also continues to be a member of and has shown paintings at the Art Gallery of Regina. Her work is in both private and corporate collections across Canada. Having retired from work, Margaret has picked up her brushes and is enjoying the continuous journey of learning and developing her artistic skills.
