About This Work
“Creatively energized after experiencing Ireland’s coastal terrain, I set out to capture the overwhelming emotional connections I encountered with the shifting landforms.”



Canadian contemporary abstract artist Margot Roi resides in Oakville, Ontario and has been exhibited throughout Ontario for over 30 years. She began her artistic career in textile and interior design with an Arts and Technology degree from Sheridan College. Margot switched to fine arts where during a BFA Honours degree from the University of Windsor she developed a gestural painting/drawing style that has landed her many gallery exhibitions. Her love of encouraging others to find their artistic voice led Margot to receive a Bachelor of Education degree at Nipissing University and a 30-year teaching career at the university, college, and secondary school levels. Margot has received numerous provincial and regional awards for her work as a visual artist and arts educator. She continues to teach and explore her own connected voice.  



Artist Statement
I’m inspired by the emotions that natural landscapes can evoke. My current gestural compositions capture the cycles or atmospheric changes within connective locations. I paint expressively in an abstract format to reveal the recalled and blended forms of my experiential narrative. Focusing on the chaotic and meditative elements that I sense within nature informs my colour interpretations.
