She is moved by the natural beauty, enchantment and culture of her island home. She gravitates toward the lush colors, textures, and moods that she has long been surrounded by, and she tranalsates them into her own language of soft, muted hues and comforting tones. Many of Margaret’s paintings and illustrations of gorgeous lounging ladies capture the captivating softness and subtle beauty of the female form. Through her paintings and illustrations, Margaret brings to life her heart’s inspiration.
