After studying photography in her native country of Canada Margot made her way to Northern California in the mid 1990's. She stepped easily into the commercial photography world in San Francisco freelancing for local magazines, universities and corporations. When the photography industry shifted from film to digital Margot found herself spending more time working on the computer and less time working with her hands.
As a break from the computer Margot started to experiment with painting, wax, and lighting. Her work has always been a mix of disciplines and materials which include encaustic (wax) painting, photography, abstract collages and hand-crafted lamps made from recycled and repurposed objects.
