Margot’s Paintings and Serigraphs are art with a message. “An incredibly important aspect of my art is the privilege position it gives me to share my views with an audience. I believe it is more effective to draw people in with whimsical or humorous art, and then present a serious topic, than it is to hit them over the head with something, and have someone walk away irritated.”
The kernel of inspiration for Margot often comes from the news, or other events that are happening around her. Her art tells a story that is often portrayed by animal characters with human personalities, but occasionally people get to play the lead role. Margot is often compelled in her art to deal with topics that she has a deep emotional connection to, such as concern over the environment, the way truth is played with by politicians and those with power, and over issues around social injustice. Although Margot frequently deals with serious issues in her Paintings and Serigraphs, Humor is a common thread that runs through much of her Artwork.
