This is the second time Marg Smith has been the subject of my blog "In the Artist's Studio" and truthfully not that much has changed except for the colour of our hair. Marg is still a passionate artist creating beautiful works of art - she is still teaching and learning - she still creates in the same lovely well lit and spacious studio in her home - she still sells her work in a number of galleries throughout the province and she is still evolving as an artist.
Check back on my blog of February 2016 for the first one. https://www.cjbenningtonphotography.ca/blog/2016/2
Marg is always welcoming of visitors to her creative space. Unfortunately, due to Covid she is not able to teach group classes at present, she does, however, still teach one on one. There's plenty of space to keep your distance in her studio/gallery which contains some distinct spaces. Like this one here - her main painting easel where she is working on a commission piece that will in all likelihood become a family heirloom. Marg keeps her computer monitor and photographs as references close at hand.
Marg Smith is one of the few artists I know who enjoy a commission. Many feel the pressure of meeting someone else's expectations in addition to their own but she is invigorated by the challenge it presents.
