A Raku demonstration by Dorothy Hope in 1978 was the initial inspiration behind the decades of creations in clay by Margaret Brown. Following her early experimentations with the clay medium, Margaret decided to attend a formal studio ceramics course in Kempsey, NSW. She completed a Diploma in Visual Arts (Ceramics) at the Australian National University School of Art and received a Technical award upon completion of the course.

Since Brown's graduation, her work has been in continual demand within the Bega valley, where she now lives, and surrounding townships. She has developed a professional relationship with selected galleries and commercial outlets within the local region that exhibit and sell her perfected creations.
