Introduction Margaret Elliot [Born in Wanganui, Margaret gained a BSc in Chemistry followed by a Diploma of Fine Arts in Painting at the University of Canterbury. She has exhibited throughout New Zealand in solo and group shows in both public and dealer galleries and has received several awards most notably the artists to Antarctica Fellowship in 1998. Since then she has had two more trips to the ice as a tutor with the Graduate Course for Antarctic Studies. She is currently working on a series of works based upon a visit to the Chatham Islands and about to start a series based on the Grand South Island Tour. Margaret primarily works with oil paint on board or canvas but is also exploring the use of mixed media to enrich the paint surface and add dimension to the work. She has recently exhibited a series of etchings and monoprints.
