Margaret Shields


Margaret Shields was born and brought up in Middlesbrough. After Middlesbrough College of Art, she studied music at the Royal Academy of Music in London. She returned home to paint urban subjects, and in the evenings to teach the piano, at the same time working as a freelance designer of graphics, costume and set for theatre, murals and commissions for paintings for civic presentation. In 1985 she moved to Saltburn by the Sea and work began to reflect her change of location, and for the first time to include images of the sea.
