Margaret Ellen Turner has an extensive exhibition profile in national and international, private, public and institutional galleries. She has won significant art awards and is represented in private collections. Her fourth decade of art making has seen her focus move from sculpture to paint. She brings to her canvas a continuing fascination with three dimensions and an experimental approach to manipulation of paint and negotiates aesthetic decision-making with the serendipity of the process. She has produced three major solo exhibitions in the last 10 years, been a finalist in numerous art awards including the Sunshine Coast Art Prize, and in 2013 won the Kenilworth Painting Prize.
