Marshscapes and landscapes are currently the subjects Margaret is focusing on. They are low horizon paintings done in acrylic. She also paints many of the local southern culinary specialties such as oysters and crabs. For years she painted dramatic florals with dark backgrounds. She still loves that subject but is having a great time experimenting with new mediums such as cold wax and oil.
She has an appreciation for all artistic styles and has juried both state and national exhibitions. She taught many workshops throughout New Jersey and has become a popular demonstrator. Her works are in many private collections.
