Influenced by Post-Inpressionists and contemporary painters, Margaret Chappelle was noted for her abstractionist sculptures and paintings. Her media included oils, water colours, tempera, clay, mosaics and silkscreen prints. She completed several murals. Her work was exhibited throughout Canada and the U.S. One of her vases was selected by the Smithsonian Institute to represent Canadian talent in pottery.
Born in Winnipeg, Chappelle grew up in the Garneau area of Edmonton and studied at the University of Alberta, under H.G. Glyde; at the Banff School of Fine Arts; and at Emma Lake Workshops.

A Life Member of the Alberta Society of Artists, Chappelle joined the society in 1944 and held several executive offices, including Vice-President 1954-56 and 1962-66. She was also a member of the Canadian Guild of Potters, the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Edmonton Art Club and sat on the executive of the Edmonton Art Gallery, where she taught for ten years. A strong painter herself, she dedicated herself to promoting the work of Alberta artists, organizing exchange programs with artists across the continent and helping bring famous Canadian painters such as A.Y. Jackson to speak with local artists.
Later in life, Chappelle became reclusive, preferring to sketch in her secluded back yard. Her other interests included environmental concerns and the Humane Society. She was instrumental in stopping a freeway which had been proposed through the MacKinnon Ravine. When her handwritten will was found a week after her death, SPCA officials were stunned to find that Chappelle had given them the largest cash donation ever made to a Canadian animal shelter.
