Inspired by the natural world Margaret Taylor’s paintings are based on a response to places both lived and travelled.

Some are a direct experience worked en plein air while immersed in the landscape; others are evocative of the feeling of a place, an emotional response accessing past history and memory.

Employing a painterly language that brings energy to her work it is the tension between representation and abstraction Margaret captures in expressing the poetry she sees in the world. There in the alchemy and interplay of surface, line, shape, space, colour and light she finds the magic that keeps her engaged in the process of painting.

After many years of painting, experimenting and learning, including classes with some excellent local and international artists, Margaret returned to full time study in 2020 and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the National Art School, Sydney in 2022. Selected works have been included in a number of art prizes including the Mosman and Muswellbrook Art Prize. Her work is held in private collections here in Australia, the USA and UK.
