About the Artist
About Margaret Connolly - Artist
After retiring from the hectic corporate world in Sydney in 2001, Margaret moved to the Sunshine Coast.
Not picking up a paint brush for nearly 20 years, Margaret joined T.A.G (Tinbeerwah Art Group) in 2011 and started painting - using acrylics for the first time.
In the early days, Margaret always painted “ traditional realism” but after lots of excellent guidance from tutors at T.A.G., she started to explore and experiment using texture and different media in her paintings.
Margaret’s passion is painting animals, especially horses, dogs, cats and farm animals. She loves to be able to immortalise portraits of people's beloved “Fur Children” on canvas, and has completed several commissions over the last couple of years.
Margaret usually has a number of paintings on exhibition at the Railway Carriage Gallery in Pomona.
