As a mature student, Margaret Field studied for 2 years at Chester Art College, and 3 years for a degree in Fine Art - Painting & Printmaking BA (Hons) at Sheffield Hallam University. England. In the first two years since gaining her degree, she has mainly focused on building up her reputation by exhibiting in various galleries across the country as far afield as Scarborough in the North, and Aldershot in the South.\ She is also a member of two groups of artits, one calling themselves 'FEMME' and the other a newly formed duo named "Fran & Marg". Previously her work was conceptual involving photography, ready-mades and site-specific work based on her time spent living in London, and also her domestic life. Drawing from a strong 1060's heritage her work now focuses on paintings of stars of the 50's and 60's and London scenes, which are all painted in shadow. These are then combined with interpretations of vintage textile designs, which are added for the backgrounds. These works have the look of "Pop Art", and are painted in vinyl silk/acrylic on canvas, in bright colours. "I have always tried to bring joy to the viewer, either with comedy or as with my latest paintings, brightness of colours. I feel that I have succeeded, as reactions so far have been very good"
