Australian artist Margaret Olley (b.1923) exhibited talent as a painter while still in high school. By the age of 24 she had won the Mosman Art Prize, and the next year had her first solo exhibition at Macquarie Galleries. Margaret Olley's paintings were post-Impressionist, and she was greatly inspired by Henri Matisse.
Margaret Olley's artwork of brightly colored floral arrangements, fruit, and lived-in home interiors display her skill with oil paints; she also did a more somber series in the '60s of portraits of Aboriginal women. Margaret Olley's paintings were exhibited frequently, and right up until her death in 2011, she was working on new still life oil paintings.
