Margaret Macdonald, painter and glass artist. one of the most influential figures in modern aesthetics, she was a pioneer, being a part of the first group of women to be admitted in the Glasgow School of Arts.
She, along with her sister Frances, and her future husband, the celebrated architect Charles Rennie Mcintosh and Herbert Mcnair, formed a collaborative group (the four) with shared aesthetic vision.
She worked mainly on the interiors of Macintosh’s buildings, and was responsible for the water colour renderings of the aesthetic concepts.

notes to myself

'notes to myself' is a series of notecards, that express feelings through words and graphics.
