Margaret Walty
  -    -    -  Margaret Walty
Margaret Walty has exhibited widely in Britain and abroad, and particularly enjoys taking part in art shows such as those of the World Fantasy Convention, the World Science Fiction Convention, and the yearly British Science Fiction Convention.

For botanical illustration she has been awarded a total of five Silver-Gilt Medals and four Gold Medals by the Royal Horticultural Society and the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society and is a member of the Scottish Society of Botanical Artists.

She paints mostly in acrylics and occasionally in oils, layering the paint in many thin glazes to achieve the intensity of colour and luminosity with which she sees the world.

She is increasingly combining the three principal facets of her work, fantasy, nature and botanical, to explore the boundaries between fantasy and reality, seeking to evoke in the viewer the sense of wonder at the world that all of us possess in childhood.
