Margret grew up in the Maritimes, but has lived and travelled across Canada. From one side of the country to the other, one constant is the richness of the colours that make it so beautiful. Also constant are the wonderful stories that Canadians tell. Margaret likes to share her favourite stories through her paintings, using a vivid Canadian palette to bring them to life.
