Still life art for minimalists

Australian still life artist Margot Wiburd creates velvety pastel still life drawings and oil paintings that evoke a sense of harmony while being gently understated. Her still life art subjects are selected for their subtle beauty - a Japanese bowl, a single, hand-crafted vessel, a jade bracelet...

Her palette is limited, to accentuate mood and above all, generate a feeling of space. This is art that loves room to breathe...

With a background in fine art, film and writing, and classical art training in France, Margot works alternately in each of these areas. She is currently involved in a number of writing and editing projects.



Am having a great year as one of two resident artists for 2013-2014 at INQB8 Gallery, Mandurah Centre for Contemporary Art. New art pieces coming soon...


I have been in close touch with an extraordinary animal shelter in India, which rescues, heals, vaccinates, rehomes (where possible) and absolutely gives all to raise the quality of life of stray dogs. The love and dedication of all there is amazing. BUT....

Now, due to the global financial crisis, this amazing Rescue Shelter is in urgent financial need. Any help you can afford them will be GREATLY and sincerely appreciated. Please visit their website and fall in love with them...and please donate. Whatever you can give will really make a difference.

Arunachala Animal Sanctuary and Rescue Shelter

With thanks from the woofers.
