Margaret CHINN

Margaret trained at the Coventry College of Art and Reading University.  She taught art and crafts at various schools in Hertfordshire, London and Coventry.  By taking early retirement, she moved to West Penwith and began to devote herself entirely to her creative life.

A skilled painter in oil, Margaret works in multi-media to create lino prints, etchings, watercolours and collages. She has exhibited extensively mainly in West Cornwall over the past 25 years, always willing to work with others for charitable purposes, and contributing to voluntary events.
