Margaret Loxton was born in Middlesex in 1938 and only started painting in 1981. Three years later she had won the Painting Prize at the 1984 City of London Festival.
In 1986, Margaret Loxton was invited to exhibit at several French museums, including the Musee Fabre, Montpelier.
Her subjects include Cornish fisherfolk and Leicestershire farmers. Regular travels through the Dordogne, Normandy, Brittany, Provence (and other regions of France) have resulted in several series of paintings of local paysan life, full of earthy merriment and sensual felicities – gastronomic, scenic, architectural and delightfully human.
Her work is much sought by private collectors throughout the world, and previous limited edition prints of her work have sold out.
