Margaret won the Michael Evans Figurative Award for her work Phoenix 

"..A Phoenix obtains new life by rising from the ashes of it’s predecessor. In nature, fire is necessary for regeneration. The brief lifespan of a flower reveals the inescapable, inevitable process of change yet new possibilities emerge from the darkness, an energy or life force that can’t be contained" - Margaret Emsley
