Margaret Crutchley has original artworks available online with Wychwood Art and also in their art gallery in Deddington, Oxfordshire. After many years working in Science, including work as a veterinary surgeon, Margaret returned to her childhood love of Art some twenty years ago. She soon settled on two favourite genres: landscape and portraiture; of both humans and animals. She is totally fascinated by the challenging art of capturing, not only a likeness, but also the character and situation of a subject.
She does this by careful study of stance, movements, gestures and expressions. These are translated into slightly simplified images in telling colours, using oil or acrylic paint on canvas. Margaret's landscapes are less controlled than her portraits. Bright colours and expressive brush marks are used to convey the atmosphere of the scene.
Margaret Crutchley lives and works in London.
