Margaret Larlham paints outdoors  most often in Mission Trails Preserve, near her home in San Diego. The  California landscape of distant mountains, dry stony washes and the diversity, fragility and hardiness of the chaparral and play of light at different times of the day and season changes constantly. She records these fleeting impressions in the drag, mark and layering of pastel on paper.

She is drawn to wilderness terrain. Her paintings record the textures, energy and surprises she finds in California coastal pastoral and other locations. She travels widely, always with supplies of pastel and paper at the ready, seizing opportunities to stop and paint - to experience deeply and record the  impression and image of the day.

Born in Durban, South Africa, Margaret moved to San Diego with her husband, Peter, and children in 1986. While waiting for legal residency in the United States she returned studies of art, in the Fine Art Department at San Diego State University. She began exhibiting paintings in local galleries soon thereafter and her work has since found residence in many private collections.

She has a Master of Arts degree in Theatre from the University of Kwazulu-Natal and is currently tenured in the School of Theatre, Television, and Film at San Diego State University. Margaret is a constant painter. The activity of painting and exploring various media has punctuated her life in all its phases.

She is represented by Santa Ysabel Art Gallery.



We would appreciate having more art for the Storefront Gallery.  This work will be up over the holidays.


We do NOT have a meeting in November and December.  We sincerely hope you have Happy Holidays and lots of wonderful times with your family and friends!


Our next meeting will be on January 21, 2017.


The Clairemont Art Guild

Founded in 1954

The purpose of the Clairemont Art guild shall be for the advancement of creative arts in the community and for individual growth through association with the Guild.


We will encourage each artist to create his or her own work, expressing individual interpretation of the subject.


We will strive to keep our aims and integrity above question. Copy work will not be exhibited.

The CAG holds monthly meetings, presenting lectures, demonstrations and critiques. Exhibits by credentialed members are shown in libraries and other locations. There are annual judged and juried shows at which ribbons and cash awards are given.

The CAG is associated with Mesa College Art Department. Awards are presented each year to outstanding art students from Mesa College.  We also present awards to students whose work is in the Student Division of the San Diego County Fair.
