Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Margery graduated from the University of Calgary in 1995, with a Bachelor of Fine Art majoring in painting and photography.  

Inspired by the rugged beauty of the Canadian landscape, Margery focuses her painting on the places she has visited.  Not only is she motivated to get out and explore, she feels that by representing the locations she has visited, she can honestly render the experience, focusing on the feel and mood.

Margery is a member of the Leighton Art Centre, the Calgary Creative Arts Guild and the Airdrie Regional Arts Society.  Her work has been collected both nationally and internationally.  Currently she is represented by the Main Gallery & Framing Studio in Lacombe, Alberta.
