Margaret Barnard studied under the influential artist and teacher Claude Flight, at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art. She worked predominantly in linocut, but is also known for painting Italian landscapes and the Scottish coastline. Her bold, vibrant technique was typical of the 1920s Art Deco style. Barnard first exhibited in Glasgow in 1922. She then moved to London where she exhibited widely, including two shows at the Royal Academy. She married the artist Robert Mackechnie. They lived in Italy for a while and in 1934 settled in Rye, Sussex. Two years after Barnard's death, Rye Art Gallery held a memorial exhibition of her work.
