Margo Random discovered art following a career as a musician, songwriter and actress. Studying at Putney School of Art and Morley College, for the past fourteen years she has been passionate about making art. While oil painting is her first love, Margo is also interested in exploring watercolour, collage, monoprint, and other printing techniques. Margo has shown her work at Putney, Sprout Arts, Wandsworth Artists Open House and other galleries and art shows in London. Her ‘Tooting Bec’ limited edition prints were acquired by London Transport Museum.
Margo’s work encompasses landscape, still life and portraits with an abstract sensibility and a love of colour derived from her travels, her London home and her origins in New York.
‘Most often, the idea comes first and then some preliminary drawings. These dictate which medium will best convey what I am trying to express. Lately, the images I’ve been making reach their natural conclusion in an abstract image. Increasingly, I am reaching for the essence of the image and to depict it with simplicity and emotion.
