http://MargiesPalette.com Painting on Yupo paper is like painting on greased glass. Exotic effects from the interaction of the yupo paper and the watercolors. Her portfolio and subject matter is very diverse and it ranges from portraiture to landscapes. She has also illustrated children's books. Her French Ladies have always been very popular and are known as the Ladies with One Striped Stocking.
She is a unique artist with the conviction that a painting is a spiritual gift that comes from God through the artist's inner sanctum. A good painting does not go out of style; it brings joy and happiness to those in it's presence. "I believe the reward as an artist is the enjoyable process of creation, giving birth to shape, color and value. The owner's reward is the visual and aesthetic pleasure which nourishes the soul," stated Margie.
One of Margie's favorite things to do is to tell children stories while drawing the story. She also enjoys giving art lessons and recently has begun offering free art lessons on her blog, http://Margies.Palette/blog
Margie paints in all mediums including oils, watercolor and pastels. She has furthered her studies with illustrious artists such as Dale Elliot and Rob Wareing in South Africa, Craig Nelson, Charles Reid, Ted Goerschner and Jan Kunz to name a few. She has held many solo exhibitions both in the U. S. and abroad. Per Margie "Art is my passion and my living. I thank God every day for giving me this talent and such a wonderful job!"
Her work is influenced by the beauty of the Central Coast and often times she paints to remember the country of her birth, South Africa.
