Montreal based artist, Margaret Lipsey, trained initially as a classical chef. In 2015, Margaret began to focus more fully on abstract acrylic work, concentrating on building textures, creating sweeping movements and the play of colours from her palette knives.
She has presented her work across North America, including exhibitions in Montreal, Toronto, New York, and Miami.
“As an artist, I began exploring two divergent paths. On one, I found grace and strength; women demanding to be seen, giving pause to those who passed. The other path is much more reflective. The abstracts are pieces of myself coming out into the world. These are an intuitive release that I only come to recognise upon completion of the work.”
