Marg's Bio

An Albertan, Marg lives in Okotoks. Marg’s amazement of beauty in life plays an important role in her paintings. Painting gives her the opportunity to capture that “WOW” moment in vibrant oils and evoke that feeling in the viewers of her art.

Marg’s work is oils on canvas, or canvasboard and is usually done ala prima (wet on wet). Her subject matter is varied and includes landscape, children, pets, animals, florals and commissions. The majority of her works are influenced by life in western Canada and particularly of Alberta. This includes the landscapes, farm animals and pet portraits that she paints.

Marg hones her skills and knowledge through workshops with Canadian and American artists such as Doug Swinton, Gabor Svagrik, Neil Patterson, Roger Arndt and Murray Phillips. She is an Active member of the Canadian Federation of Artists, a member of Visual Art Society of Alberta (VAAA), CARFAC, Okotoks Art Council, and High River Arts Society. Marg owns Lavender Art Studio and is co-founder of Brushed With Flair.
