Margaret Newbigin printer and painter

Margaret has always loved art and craft so on retirement she undertook the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at West Dean College, qualifying in 2019. The course enabled her to see that it is not necessary to specialise, so for Margaret that means print making, textiles, metalwork and, more recently, painting. She is inspired by her love of light and landscape.

Examples of Margaret’s work can be viewed on her instagram page.
