Ep.93 Margo McDaid - Ministry of Arts Podcast

This week Gary Mansfield speaks to Margo McDaid (@margoinmargate)   Margo McDaid, known on Social Media as Margo in Margate, has accumulated quite a following thanks to her simple, yet extremely inviting and friendly portraits.   Ten years after giving herself the task of creating a painting a day. Margo’s work now sells faster than she can make it. Primarily through the Craft website Etsy, but since the Summer of 2019, they have been a huge success in Martgate’s Turner Contemporary.   Margo’s vintage style portraits are based on no-one, but appear to be everyone & anyone and her use of colour emits a joyful sense of optimism.   For more information on Margo McDaid and his work go to www.etsy.com/uk/shop/margomcdaidart   *Cover Photo courtesy of Hester van Overbeek @ hestershandmadehome   For full line up of confirmed artists go to https://www.ministryofarts.org Email: ministryofartsorg@gmail.com
