'Margaret is a painter who distils the essence of a landscape'
Margaret's acrylic landscapes are interpretations and celebrations of the countryside and the natural world. She especially responds to the beauty of trees.
By means of bold composition, simplification, vibrant colours and expressive brushstrokes her work shows the emotive effects of light on the land. Her work often draws us from dark towards light; from shadows under trees, or under a dark hedge to a brightly lit area beyond.
She has twice had work accepted for the annual competition of the Royal Watercolour Society and twice for the exhibition of the Royal Institute of Watercolour Painters at the Mall Galleries.
She exhibits at the Hertford Open and Letchworth Open and online with www.wychwoodart.com
She is a member of the London Painters and Sculptors Group and Studio Fridays, www.studiofridays.com
