Born & raised in Taree Margo began painting at a young age & when she was only 12 she entered the Walkom-Manning Art Prize where she won the “Children of the Manning” Youth Award with “Wingham Brush”. This was the first exhibition Margo entered. Margo has been based in Newcastle since 2003 & in 2009 Margo & her partner Matthew established their own business, Kasarn Designs, named after their daughter.
Margo was selected as one of 10 artists for the Mattara Festival’s Inaugural Outdoor Art Exhibition & her “Look up in the Sky Tonight” was draped over Newcastle Panthers in October 2011. 10 buildings participated in the art trail.
In 2012 Margo’s T-Shirt Design, The Line Up, made the final 20 in Redbubble’s SXSW T-shirt Competition for New York band The Big Sleep. In the same year Margo joined the Hunter Arts Network committee as their “Social Media Guru” & helps in promoting their quarterly Art Bazaars.
Margo has also been involved in many community projects including the 2002 Peoplescape project & designing & creating street banners for Victoria Street in Taree in 1996.
Margo is passionate about art & showing & selling her colourful abstract & landscape paintings. Margo’s visual vocabulary has made her known for her painterly style & colourful canvases. The energy in her works appears to be limitless & she loves creating works that you could stare at for hours. For Margo, the creative voyage along the way is equally significant as the outcome.
