About The Artist 

Margaret Hughlock trained in textile design and fashion design at Bolton College of Art. She was employed originally in the textile industry and worked for the UK's leading manufacturer, creating household textiles for Dorma and many leading store brands including the Mary Quant range which Margaret launched in Japan. Later working within the commercial interiors market and evening wear with hand painted and embroidered details.

Margaret now works from her studio on the Lancashire coast creating sculptural works of art for High Street galleries and paintings for the print market in the UK, Italy and USA. Her paintings are distinctive for their unique sculptural qualities and additional embossed foil technique, combined with the use of strong acrylic colour themes. Her subject matter varies from still life imagery to abstract and figurative works.

Each foil is hand cut, painted and laid down on a decorated back panel to form a beautiful distinctive 3D painting.
