Melbourne-based artist Margaret Gurney has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally in a career spanning most of her life.

Margaret Gurney often paints in remote parts of the Australian outback. Her work is a strong reflection of our Australian iconography and imagery. Her exhibition ‘Inland’ attracted much interest. It is these stunning landscapes of Australia that Margaret exhibited in Italy 2009.

A love of drawing and painting has been a natural part of Margaret’s life from her earliest days. Her contemporary style continues to develop, emphasising strong shapes, form and glowing, intuitive colour. She is versatile, working in watercolours, oils, mixed media and drawing.

Born into an artistic family, she is the youngest daughter of Australian war artist, Alex Gurney, creator of the legendary ‘Bluey and Curley’ cartoon.

Margaret Gurney paints with a deep passion and for the sheer love of such a creative outlet. A burst of colour and light to inspire, delight and remember is what she hopes her paintings gave to people of Italy.
