Margaret Scott has been painting for over 50 years and has lived all her life on the Taranaki coast. She describes her work as personal symbolism as it is based on personally acquired and assimilated experiences of her life and the environment where she lives between Mt. Taranaki and the sea.
In her early years, Margaret taught polytechnic, art night classes and for 10 years was HOD of art at Opunake High School.
Since 2002 Margaret has lived in Oakura and has a purpose built studio next to her house where she exhibits her work, opens for Arts Trails, entertains group tours and runs workshops for adults and students. She is a member of the Oakura Arts Trail, The Taranaki Arts Trail, the Stratford Art Society and the Taranaki Arts Society.
Margret paints mainly in acrylics, but also paints with watercolours. In 2015 she wrote and produced her own book called Self Portrait of a Paua.
