Margot Snow is a watercolour artist with works exhibited in both private and corporate collections across North America and Europe.

Margot, a native of Montreal, Quebec, lived in Guelph, Ontario for 25 years and since 2003 resides in Muskoka with her husband Wayne.

Margot will also be teaching two credit courses for Fleming College at the Haliburton School of Art in Haliburton in 2014. This is her third year teaching for the College.

Margot is an avid gardener who's love of life and nature is reflected in her paintings. Each work is "a celebration of the harmony and beauty of the natural world". She brings life to common objects with her intense use of colour.

"Colour is the essence of my work - it is uppermost in my mind when I choose a subject and is what challenges and interests me most. Colour can change a viewer's mood, it can stimulate a feeling of peacefulness and well-being and it can awaken a soul."
