Margaret Woodward was born in Sydney in 1938. She liked to study so she completed various degrees at the National Art School, Sydney Technical College, University of Western Australia, Sydney Teacher's College and University of New England. Margaret also traveled extensively and it is said that all these trips have provided much of the imagery for her paintings and her graphic work. And though I see her work more intimate and related to inner self and to herself as a woman. Sometimes you need to travel far to be able to find yourself.

Michael Borremans (b. 1963) is considered to be one of the most accomplished painters of the last decades. His figures are beautifully rendered in a technique that reminds of the Old Master, but the ambiguos, mysterios tone of his paintings places him into contemporaneity.
