Margot’s Art combines very Realistic Elements with a Setting that Defies Reality
Artwork is meant to be shared, it is a back and forth between the artist, and the viewer. Painting with a twist combines realistic elements, often using animal characters to tell a story, in an Unrealistic Setting. Whether the artwork is exploring Environmental, or Humorous, Political, Socially Conscious, or Heartwarming topics, the artist is trying to paint with a twist that engages the viewer. The idea is to connect with the viewer, and ask them to contemplate something, possibly from a new angle.
Margot been working full time as an artist for decades. ‘I consider the creative process to be a vocation, or a calling, rather than a job. An artist simply is who I am.’ After university Margot set herself up in her first studio, and she has never looked back. Margot has participated in nearly 150 International Juried Competitions in countries all over the world.
Following her husband Bruce’s job Margot moved from Saint John New Brunswick, to Kapuskasing, and finally to Timmins Ontario, where they currently reside. They have three children.
