B.A. (Art History), Dip.Ed. (Visual Arts), M.A. (Art Therapy)
After studies in Art History and education, Marg travelled to Nepal and India, visiting monasteries, meditation centres, seeking teachers and participating in retreats. She then spent some years in introspection living in the bush in Tasmania. This time, surrounded by trees and with the earth beneath her, still informs her life and her work. Quietly in the forest Marg engaged in the great adventure of self-knowledge and inner healing. She then pursued studies in Art Therapy, completing her Master’s Degree in 2001. She uses guided art making and awareness to support communities, groups, families, children and individuals to find their way gently, kindly and creatively to knowing themselves. Marg’s clients are held safely and confidently as they participate in their own inner adventures of living with self-care, purpose and vitality.
Marg is an Art therapist, Counsellor and Community Arts Consultant in Private Practice in Coffs Harbour. She also works as School Counsellor in a local Primary School. Recent Community Arts projects include Black Bird Creative Recovery Project (after the Black Summer bushfires), and You Are Welcome Here project with former refugees. This work hangs in Mission Australia office reception in Coffs Harbour.
