ARTIST INFORMATION

Marg is an award-winning muralist who spent her final year of study in Florence, Italy and graduated from the Ontario College of Art, in 1994. Over 20 years ago she began working as a muralist and, after requests for commissions, she opened her own studio, Murals By Marg, in 2001. In 2007, Marg was invited to exhibit her large-scale paintings at the Biennale Internazionale Dell'Arte Contempranea in Florence, Italy.

Since 2015, she has painted over three dozen public art murals in the City of Toronto. In 2017, she was awarded a Certificate of Recognition from the House of Commons for her mural in Richmond Hill as part of Canada’s 150th Anniversary. 2018 brought Marg’s art to be included in an international publication on street art, “Urban Scrawl” (Australia). In 2019, Marg participated as a wildcard for the first season of Landscape Artist of the Year, Canada, which aired on CBC in the fall of 2020. 2021 brought Marg the Denis Diderot Artist in Residence Grant for a month-long residency at the Chateau D’Orquevaux, in France, for November. Marg has artworks in private and public collections in Canada, the USA and France.
