Margaret was born in the Irish seaside town of Bray, just south of Dublin. Her father was an accomplished commercial artist and passed much of the family’s creative instinct and artist passion on to his daughter. Margaret came to Canada in her early 20’s and started into film photography and black & white darkroom techniques. She became an interior designer by trade and has taken numerous art and photography courses at Sheridan College in Oakville. Over the years, she has explored various artistic endeavours including oils, water colours and fabric arts.
Photography has provided Margaret with an important outlet for her creativity. She is a frequent speaker on the various elements of art composition and how to use them creatively in photography.
She is a founding member of the Prince Edward County Photography Club which started in 2013 and she has continued sitting on it’s Executive Committee.
She has also served as co-chair/treasurer of the CLiC Photo Show & Sale for three years and has had multiple pieces of her work accepted into this juried show for four years running.
Margaret was the curator of “A Moment in Time” photography exhibition at the John M. Parrott Art Gallery in 2018.
Margaret now lives on the scenic shores of the Bay of Quinte, near Picton Harbour.
“I enjoy both the power and the challenge that the camera provides to the artist to isolate subjects from their often cluttered surroundings and thereby make a statement about the subtleties of our natural world.”
