Margaret Roseman CSPWC, SCA, TWS

About the Artist

“A painterly approach best describes my personal style of picture making. You might say that it is a blend of impressionism, photo-realism and abstraction.”

Rich, vibrant colours and decisive brush strokes characterize Margaret’s paintings. A founder, lifetime director and signature member of the Toronto Watercolour Society, Margaret has been a popular and highly respected artist and art instructor since 1970. She has conducted workshops in Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and France. Her style and teaching approach has influenced and guided a generation of artists.

An internationally recognized artist and juror, Margaret has participated in numerous group and solo shows with an extensive list of awards to her credit. Margaret is also a signature member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Society of Canadian Artists. She has been featured in numerous publications over the years, including the Canadian Showcase of Master Painters of the World in the International Artist Magazine. She is a contributing artist to the North Light Publication “Painter’s Quick Reference: Flowers and Blooms” and “Painter’s Quick Reference: Landscapes”.

Margaret is a recipient of the Commemorative Medal for the 125 th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation and is listed in Canadian Who’s Who. Her work may be found in corporate, public and private collections worldwide.
