Margot Bogue has been making art ever since she was a little girl. Her father, an advertising executive, gave her the first drawing lessons she can remember. Growing up, Margot was always creating but never considered a career in art until an uncle told her she should "do something" with her skills. She received a BFA in Studio Art from Michigan State a few years later. In need of a job, Margot turned to the business she understood - Advertising. She spent many years working as a graphic designer, first at Ad agencies and later as a freelancer. After marriage, several moves around the country, and two children, she returned to painting portraits by continuing her education at Northern Illinois University. Later, Margot studied with Annette Pate of Roswell, Georgia, concentrating on landscape and still life. She currently paints in oil, drawing inspiration from the landscape and objects around her, as well as portraits of people and animals that find their way to her studio. Margot is a member of the Hamilton County Artists’ Association. She has been in juried shows throughout Georgia and Indiana, and her paintings are in many private collections. Her work can be seen on her website, in group and solo shows, and at Rogue Art in the Alley Gallery in Fortville, IN.
