Margaret Petchell has worked in the television & film industry for over 20 years as a wardrobe stylist and makeup artist. But besides the high flying world of TV & film that has enabled her to work all over the world for big brands, Margaret Petchell has also been painting large acrylic on canvas portraits of animals.
Sixteen years later, Margaret illustrates nothing less than beauty, all from the corner of her living room. “I have an ability to create a connection through the eyes of the painted subject. For me, the birds and animals are the Mona Lisas of their world! My works are realistic, but never quite photographically so – I don’t strive for that – they must always be my interpretation or style. That’s what makes them unique.”
