NEW ARTIST - Margie Goodchild
Margie Goodchild believes that each nourished soul brings a little sanity back into the world. Her work helps make that happen with colourful, joyous art.
Graduating with a Bachelor Degree in 1985, and revisiting Graphic Design once computers were more commonplace, you can see why Margie Goodchild's art style is 'graphic'.
Her childhood enjoyment of (South Australian artist and educator) Ruth Tuck's art lessons continued as an older student and later as one of Ruth's teachers. Thanks to the mentorship of Ruth and her teachers, a lifelong appreciation for everyday beauty and a love of glorious colour was awakened, along with a commitment to painting and drawing practise.
When studying Margie little expected that one of her greatest joys would become connecting with people whose eyes and hearts resonate with her artwork!
Margie has had 2 solo art exhibitions - the first in 1993 (between the arrivals of her 2 sons) and the second at Goolwa in 2016 – along with too many group exhibitions to count!
Goodchild works from South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula, with a friendly black cat her sunny studio companion. Awaken your smile with Margie, aka. Tangerine Meg's, vibrant artwork!
