margot wiburd - minimalist australian still life artist


'Shift' pastel on paper

Art for minimalists

Australian artist Margot Wiburd creates velvety pastel still life drawings and oil paintings that evoke a sense of harmony while being gently understated. Her 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...

Recently, Margot's subject repertoire has extended to dogs, a reflection of her deep commitment to these amazing creatures.

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 writing a book to raise awareness for the extraordinary Arunachala Animal Sanctuary & Shelter, which is responsible for saving thousands of stray dogs in South India.




Vale Paul Cox (16 April 1940 - 18 June 2016), an extraordinary human being, much loved friend and mentor. Sorely missed every day.

As 2017 unfolds, I am working on ideas for a solo exhibition at Mandurah's CASM gallery, in addition to evolving fiction and non fiction writing projects.

In February 2014 I visited an extraordinary animal shelter in India, which - with a core policy of love and kindness - rescues, heals, vaccinates, rehomes (where possible) and absolutely gives all to lift suffering from India's stray dogs. The love and dedication of all there is amazing. BUT.... right now, this precious rescue shelter needs our help to continue to do its work. Any help you can afford them will be GREATLY and sincerely appreciated. Please visit their website and fall in love with them...Whatever you can give will really make a difference.

Arunachala Animal Sanctuary and Rescue Shelter

With sincere thanks, fellow animal lovers. We can make a difference.
