Margot Ussher


I am an artist and therapist rearing a young family in West Wicklow.

I have been painting with oils since 2007. I am self taught so it has been an interesting journey for me discovering what I can do with this medium.

I love working in oils, the smell, the texture and most importantly – the freedom to make lots of mistakes and to know it can always be fixed!!

I have been drawn to Still Life and also land and seascape.

I exhibit annually at The Dunlavin Festival of Arts in June, Durrow Scarecrow Festival in August and St Brigids Festival Kilteel in February and in Cruthu Exhibition in Rusborrough.

I was one of the founding members of Cruthu Art Group in 2006 which is now based in Russborough House near Blessington.

I also work as a Counsellor and Therapist. For more information check out
