Margaret Ferguson
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Self-taught artist with a lifelong interest. I attended regular classes in Glasgow School of Art as a child.
I have completed modules with 'Open College of the Arts' and attended workshops and courses, including study under Ken Paine, master pastellist.
I have been selected as a featured artist on the 'Artists and Illustrators' website. The 'Portfolio Plus' category was 'Faces' and I was delighted to be chosen.

Spent many hours in the national Galleries in Edinburgh this summer. Was unmoved and unimpressed by a great many of the formal paintings (90%) on show since they were specific to their time and in a sense, meaningless to anyone other than a historian or technically minded art student, awe of status is not one of my failings. I then happen upon your work on the internet, self taught versus academician, you win hands down. :D (Big Grin)

Greetings! Want to express my pleasure of seeing your works: revealing that elusive feeling of life (vibrating, moving, dancing, playing music) diffused in light, which is represented in painting by colour. Wish you inspiration in large amounts. (and sorry for poor english) =)

Just wanted to say that I have been immersed in digital painting for a while now, but looking at your work has reminded me how wonderful traditional work is. Thank you!
