The Art & Soul of Marguerite
Working with wood as an art medium is a family tradition; it is an obsession whose seed was planted when I worked in the shop with my dad as a young girl. That early education has allowed me to develop an innovative hand carving technique and create my own unique style as an artist.
The natural beauty of wood inspires me and as such I use no stains of dyes to alter it in any way. I am particularly drawn to reveal and share the depth of beauty that can be found beneath the surface of grime and decay in discarded wood.
My work gives me great joy and it is my goal to express this in each piece I create. I want the viewer to be caught up in the beauty of the wood and in the compositions I have constructed; to be as infatuated as I have been since I was a child.
