I believe that each nourished soul brings a little sanity back into the world.
My work is about making that happen with colourful, joyous art.

Tangerine Meg aka. Margie Goodchild creates colourful, one of a kind watercolours featuring vibrant flowers and food, thrifted china and plenty of intriguing patterns.
Deep breaths of sea air and the big Fleurieu sky, or a moment drinking fresh sights at the farmers market leave her grateful and recharged. In her home and garden she finds small worlds of life and detail, inspiring original, joyful studies of the everyday… she is particularly drawn to the generous abundance of flowering nasturtiums and the rich colours of ripe fruit.
Her childhood enjoyment of (South Australian iconic artist and educator) Ruth Tuck’s art lessons continued as an older student and later as one of Ruth’s teachers.
Thanks to the mentorship of Ruth and her teachers, an appreciation of garden variety beauty and a love of glorious colour was awakened, along with a commitment to painting and drawing practise.
Graduating with a Bachelor Degree (Visual Communication) in the 80s and revisiting Graphic Design once computers were in use more widely, you can see why Goodchild’s art style is ‘graphic’. When studying Margie little imagined that one of her greatest joys would become connecting with people whose eyes and hearts resonate with her artwork!
She has had 2 solo art exhibitions – the first between the arrivals of her 2 now adult sons and the second at Goolwa’s Old Police Station in 2016 – and too many group exhibitions to count!
Goodchild works from South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, a friendly black cat her sunny studio companion.
