Margaret Rose Even as a child I could always be found drawing and painting. After leaving school I studied Fashion Design at college in Sheffield. From that course I gained A level Art and qualified as a member of SIAD Society of Industrial Artists and Designers. I worked in the Fashion Industry for 15 years and had little time to enjoy fine art. After having my family I returned to education attending 2 years of NVQ Art courses and then a year of private watercolour lessons. I joined Barlbrough and Clowne art group in 2005 and began my journey in community arts, exhibiting with them yearly. In 2014 I joined Worksop Society Of Artists where I met a great network of artists, enjoying demonstrations, workshops, and having opportunities to exhibit. After experimenting with all mediums, in 2014 I settled on pastels as my main focus and wildlife as my subject. I became the Chairman of the WSA in 2017. I believe that art is a lifelong journey of discovery and enjoy sharing my passion with like-minded friends Just to clarify I paint as Margaret Rose.
