With family and student encouragement, she has taught botanical art in over 10 countries. She includes color pencil, graphite and watercolor in her in-person and online teaching and her popular e-booklets are enjoyed worldwide.

Margaret's paintings have been included in numerous ASBA international juried exhibitions. Her work is held in Hunt Institute, Kew Library, the Florilegium of the Royal Sydney Botanical Gardens, and private collections around the globe. She has designed numerous coins for the Royal Canadian Mint.
