Artist statement
Most of my work is in the macro abstract genre. I enter a mesmerizing world that no one can see without a macro lens … the mysterious shades and textures of rust, the fascinating colors and designs of mold in a cracked window, the rich images buried in bark, the minute hairs on emerging spring growth …. Intriguing shapes and patterns, colors and textures, designs and images are all revealed. It gives me great pleasure to find such beauty and inspiration in the discards of our society – a derelict car, an abandoned warehouse, a rusted can, a dying tree. These overlooked items take on new life and inspire me to look for beauty where it is least expected.

Bio

Marguerite hails from “Downunder”, growing up in New Zealand and moving to Australia as a young adult, living there for over 20 years.  She came to Tallahassee in 1991 to study for her PhD, then worked in the area of performance improvement in the corporate world for many years, before establishing her own consulting company in 2006. Although always interested in photography (she still has a black and white print that placed in a competition when she was 11 years old), Marguerite became serious about it after buying her first digital camera in 2006. In 2008 she discovered macro photography by accident rather than design, and since then has developed her own signature style of macro abstract photography, particularly based on shots of dumpsters.
