Musson Lane Gallery
March Feature Artist – Margaret Cooper
We are very pleased to have Margaret Cooper as our Feature Artist at Musson Lane Gallery for the month of March. Come and visit to view Margaret’s beautiful array of artworks this Saturday from 10am-4pm.
Margaret has travelled overseas in her youth in pursuit of her study of painting; however “life” dictated that she earn a living, which led to her working in Europe while exploring the works of European artists and attending drawing workshops.
She would often sketch and paint in her wanderings throughout Europe during holiday adventures and pass them onto friends.
Once back in Australia and nearing retirement, Margaret then spent some years painting on porcelain, though she has since sold her kiln. She was the winner of “The Porcelain Palette” at the Penrith Show in 2019.
Margaret also spent some years living in Cairns and turned to painting with oils as a change from porcelain painting. She regularly sold both porcelain art pieces and canvas paintings at the combined art coop in Lake Street, Cairns CBD and at the local markets.
Mainly self-taught, she was inspired to paint the flora and fauna of the tropical rainforest as well as the richness of the entangled rainforest itself, seeking to create mood through land and water scapes with colour, shape and shadow and to depict wildelife in its various forms.
She is a member of the Macquarie Towns Art Society and regularly exhibits with us and at venues in the Hawkesbury and other nearby areas.
She won a “Highly Commended” for her painting “On the Road to West Wyalong” at the 2021 Hawkesbury Show.
Margaret’s art captures a unique visual essence of the native Australian imagery of flora & fauna.
