Margaret was taught basic sewing techniques by her mother and by the nuns at the Residential Schools. Later on she enrolled in a fashion design course at the Lethbridge Community College, in Lethbridge, AB to hone her skills. Margaret’s medium is mostly fabrics, threads, yarns and beads. She uses the materials the same way a painter uses paint and brush to create beautiful art. Her inspiration comes from the land, the awe inspiring cliffs and hills along the Mackenzie River, and the scenic Dempster Highway.
Margaret also created celestial beadwork designs that blend traditional beading techniques with her fascination of images from the Hubble space telescope.
