Margaret was born and raised in the North York suburb of Toronto. She attended The Ontario College of Art and Design, now OCAD University in Toronto, where she majored in the Jewellery/Metal Smithing. She graduated in 2007 and won the annually awarded 'Metal', which honours one graduating student from each program for the body of work they create in their thesis year.

After graduating from OCAD U she was accepted into the full time residency program at Harbourfront Centre's jewellery and metal studio where she was encouraged to make challenging work and had many professional opportunities such as lecturing, and teaching. Once she had completed the maximum three years at 'Harbourfront Centre', she went on to be a founding member of STUDIO HUDDLE in Toronto for 5 years. She now has moved to a new beautiful studio space in the west end of Toronto with her former Harbourfront studio mates Marina Babic and Patrycja Zwierzynska

Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and has received awards, scholarships and grants through the Ontario College of Art and Design, The Ontario Crafts Council, and the Ontario Arts Council.

Margaret lives in Toronto with her husband Matthew, their son Reuben and slow moving pet tortoise Elmo.
