Margie Sheppard lives at Kangarilla, in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, where she works in her studio as a printmaker and painter. Her practice now spans 30 years. In that time she has spent a long period working exclusively as a printmaker, making large densely coloured etchings for which she has become well known.

In the last few months Margie has produced two new etchings that are uncompromising in their abstraction. These etchings show a transition to the most simple forms leaving behind the figuration of her previous work.

They are currently available at the galleries below:
Art Images, Norwood SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Port Jackson Press, Collingwood, VICTORIA
Sagra Gallery, Malvern, VICTORIA
PG Printmaker Gallery, Fitzroy, VICTORIA

These can be viewed in her Adelaide and Melbourne Galleries (see contacts) ready for Christmas.
