Margaret has always had a fascination for uniquely Australian – the plants, the wildlife and our colonial beginnings.  She has travelled extensively throughout Australia and this has provided much inspiration and excellent resource to draw on.

Margaret studied at the National Art School in Wollongong and her versatility enables her to work in all mediums including oil, watercolour, pencil and conte crayon.

Numerous art prizes attest to Margaret Carr’s ability.  She has also done illustrative work such as the book about the historic village of Bungendore.
