My name is Margaret McCallum. I am an emerging artist and author. I am currently working on my debut novel, The Big Picture, whose protagonist is a female of a certain age who decides to take a chance on her dreams after years of following the path others gave her.
My art is my passion. I lose many hours in front of a canvas creating paintings with brightly coloured shapes and brushstrokes.
In October 2021, I released a children's picture rhyming book, which made it into the Amazon bestseller list for children's nursery rhymes. Creating the characters through words and illustration was a dream come true.
All my pieces of art are special and unique to me, but so too is the chance I have to give something back, and that is why I donate 20% of all sales of my art to MacMillan Cancer Support. This charity is close to my heart and to whom I will be forever indebted.
