Margaret Priest was born in England in 1944, she went to the Royal College of Art in 1970 after studying at Maidstone College of Art. In 1976 she emigrated to Canada.
Her work is in a modernist tradition, architectual interiors and landscapes, textures of building materials, concrete and marble. Immaculate images of buildings without people, all a little surreal, imaginary places and a dream of lost perfection.
Priest has exhibited widely in Canada and has works in public collections in the UK, USA and Canada. She has published many papers and been the subject of many articles.
