A5 Flyer Marguerite Abbot Proof

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 http://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.
