Previous Exhibitions and Artists.
August 2019 Exhibition – Still Life & Furry Friends – Artist Marguerite Abbot
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.

It is often difficult to express our deepest feelings with words but art has a way of crossing all boundaries of language, culture and gender. Art speaks to the heart first and continually offers new entry points for understanding ourselves and others.

as long as I can remember. Creativity is in my bones, it’s what makes me happy. I let colour inspire and lead me in a direction. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art.
