PROFILE for Margaret Goldsmith nee Burns Born in Glasgow, Scotland. Media Release for Artist MARGARET GOLDSMITH March 2003 Margaret brings the vitality and colour of the Gold coast to the tranquillity of the mountain in her expressionist, colourful figurative paintings for which she has won numerous Art Awards and is represented in important private and public art collections. Margaret has established a fine art gallery & studio on her property at Bateke Rd @ Mt Tamborine (Golf Course end of the mountain) in the midst of beatiful gardens and orchards with ocean views of the Gold Coast. "My love of strong colour interwoven with rhythmic design is obvious. I paint from the heart in an expressionistic style with the aim of simplification and directness. When i draw and paint it is for you, the viewer. If it pleases you, it is that your soul is running in tangent with mine". Margaret & Neil's collaboration of Art Glass is accredited by CRAFT MARK, meaning it is works of excellence. The dynamic designs and exciting colours of Bulls Eye Glass are in the form of platters, bowls, framed pictures etc. etc. Margaret completed her first art degree in the early 1980's and was fortunate to have great tutors like William Robinson, David Paulson, Irene Amos, Andrew Sibley and Joe Furlonger. They were great tutors as well as great artists, which is rare. "These and many other superb artist encouraged my own handwriting to the fore which is unique in itself. Through my paintings and glass work I attempt to capture a language that does not know stillness, only motion. My work is full of happy predictions, vital paint colours, fresh and vibrant moments of intense pleasure and the uncontrollable happiness of a dance on canvas or paper". "My aim is to simplify the figure further".
