This is a selection from the many unsolicited workshop and e-booklet reviews I’ve been pleased to receive.

In the interest of protecting people from online nuisance and spam, I’ve only attached initials.


I purchased three of your e-booklets yesterday. I read one of them in full last night. I highlighted the heck out of it! My only complaint is that we live too far apart for me to take an in-person workshop taught by you. Highly impressed! Your love of teaching oozed out of my booklet. – SLV

I want to thank you for the information in the booklets. They are wonderful and just what I have been looking for. I’m very excited to continue my journey into painting with this info.” – SB

These workbooks are a huge asset to me (and I’m sure to the botanical art community in general). Thank you for the work that has gone into them and the passing on of invaluable knowledge. – AvZ

These e-booklets are so great, so affordable with rich and priceless knowledge. Love them! – LM


Fabulous class. Fabulous instructor. Learned so much.- CB

Your teaching resonates with me so strongly. For years I have struggled and struggled with my color mixing and my inability to get very dark shadows that were not sludgy got me down many a time. But your booklets and online course helped me understand color in a way I never have before. – IvZ

The online workshop with Margaret was amazing! The level she took us to in three days was nothing short of mind blowing. – VR

Thank you for a very enlightening “Capturing Light ” workshop. For my painting, this workshop, along with the previous “Chasing Shadows” workshop, was a complete game changer. Having a controlled lighting setup, being made aware of the shadows and reflected light on the subject and then translating all of that into paint with a very carefully-chosen palette, has brought my painting to a whole new level. – CS

I had 3 WOW moments in Margaret’s workshop. What you need to do before you even put a brush to paper, how to mix paints correctly and keep the consistency accurate throughout a painting and, how to build depth of colour. – GC

Such a great class! This approach to colour instruction is so effective. – DP
