Margie Sheppard

Margie Sheppard lives at Kangarilla, in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, where she works in her studio as a printmaker and painter.  Her practice now spans 30 years. In that time, she has spent a long period working exclusively as a printmaker, making large densely coloured etchings for which she has become well known. In recent years she has returned to oil painting and she is currently dividing her time between painting and printmaking. Both these practices hold different but equally strong attractions for her.

Margie Sheppard’s new paintings and etchings show a transition to the simplest forms, leaving behind the figuration of her previous work. Simplicity and strength dominate.

Margie’s new work has the same sensibility as her previous figurative images. The stillness and dream-like quality remain.
