From a creative background in New Zealand’s fashion, film and television industry, and with a lifelong love and appreciation of beauty, colour and detail, Margaret’s progression into painting sixteen years ago was a natural extension of her creative life. Since then her reputation as a collectable artist has grown exponentially with her original paintings gracing well-known walls around the world, as well as here in New Zealand. Margaret has had four solo exhibitions of her larger than life acrylic on canvas paintings, with limited edition fine art prints of all original works also available. Intricate detail and perfection of colour and light are what first draw you in, but what really sets the work of artist Margaret Petchell apart, is her whimsy and the depth of personality imbued in her birds and animals and more recently her series of crowns and botanical flowers.
