MARGO Humphries is the guest artist at Belmont’s Gallery & Grind during January and February.
Gallery & Grind is a family-run business that incorporates both a cafe and an art gallery in the one space.
Born and raised in Taree, at the age of 12 she entered the Walkom-Manning Art Prize and won the Children of the Manning Youth Award with Wingham Brush. Her hobby became a profession in 2009 when she started her business, Kasarn Designs.
In 2011 Margo was one of 10 artists selected for the Mattara Festival’s inaugural Outdoor Art Exhibition, and her Look up in the Sky Tonight was draped over Newcastle Panthers.
She has had solo exhibitions at Suspension Espresso, Islington; Finite Gallery, Caves Beach; Tartuca Espresso Bar Bistro, Denman; and Goodness Me Organics, Adamstown.
Margo paints with acrylics and has only recently discovered ink. She paints recognisable objects and scenes with an abstract twist, and finds joy in painting subjects with great colours. Visit Margo’s website: http://www.kasarndesigns.com
Gallery & Grind is located at 600 Pacific Highway, Belmont. It is is open Monday to Friday, 5.30am to 3pm; Saturday and Sunday, 7am to 3pm.
