Guest Artist : Margot Paris


Margot Paris is a Canadian artist who splits her artistic life between Canada & France. My work is founded on the process of seeing and drawing from life. With training in architecture, my artistic practice includes plein air sketching, painting, and collage. Poetic sculptural works use ’sarments de vigne’ (prunings of the vineyard) and other cast-offs of the wine making process.
