Lives and works

Yamaji Country | Geraldton

Margaret was born on Billabong Station in the Murchison and is a Wajarri woman. She is the second of seven children. Her childhood was spent swimming and fishing in the Murchison River and she went to school at Tardun Mission School. Her inspiration comes from the works of other Aboriginal artists and her Aunty Olive Boddington. She came to painting later in her life. Margaret is the mother of seven children herself and is an industrious and prolific artist. Her current works are reflections of Yamaji Country.
