Margaret's works are inspired by the colors, forms and textures found in nature. She creates her work through the use of different mediums ranging from acrylics and inks to gouache, texturizing agents and pastels. Her compositions are abstract in style with fluid washed layers of texture and colors evoking an organic feeling. Margaret grew up with artists and creatives on both sides of her family which instilled a love and appreciation for the process and creation of art and design from a very young age.
