Artist – Marguerite Abbot
MEET THE ARTIST
Photography was a starting point for me where I could not resist photographing beautiful scenes that capture harmony, colour, gentleness and beauty; I started painting in 1995 and have had some wonderful tutors over the years here on the Gold Coast. My medium of choice is oils as I enjoy the intensity of the colours and blending them and in the integrity of the medium as featured in old masters paintings
The Exhibition ‘Still Life and Furry Friends’
Still Life has been a favourite genre, however now with my new website www.margueritepetportraits.com, I have been focussing on paintings of animals. As a dog lover and sitter I started painting the dogs I looked after as they came alive on the canvas and it was a treat for me to be able to portray their characters on canvas.
Coming in September 2019
Artist – International Women
September heralds 2 exciting multi cultural exhibitions all showcasing the diversity of the artists living here on the Gold Coast. The 1st exhibition as shown below is of a variety of cultures from Iranian to Moroccan all with their own distinctive style but also influences of their new life in Australia.

Our 2nd exhibition starting September 12th will be from artist Nasrin Vaziri her exhibition Woman & Pomegranate, dedicated to women’s global emancipation; also show her influences from both Iran and Australia.
Both exhibitions will be well worth the viewing of truly local but international art.
