Margaret McGillivray

Waterhole and Trees

At the age of nine I was tutored at the Harry McClelland's Art Studio in Frankston. I majored in Art while undertaking teacher training in the Education Department. I was a specialist Primary Art Teacher for three years and co-ordinated a number of Community Art Projects. I have received the following awards: Cube 37 Honourable Mention 2011; DACE Award of Excellence 2013;Dromana Art Show Best Contempory 2013 and Best Mixed media 2016.
First Solo Exhibition at the Frankston Art Centre 2012.
My preferred medium is oil paint with combinations of mixed media, including collage materials and enamel paint. I paint figuratively using actual textures. My subject matter explores the Australian landscape.
