Margareta, the artist

Here is a subdivision of our site presenting Margareta and her work as an artist, reports from the Sollentuna Art Shows in which she has participated, and also some general material about art and artists. It has its own set of navigation buttons above.

About me and my work

After my studies at the Art School “Konstfack” in Stockholm, I have worked as an illustrator of books and designer of graphic art, e.g. postcards, stationery and diplomas, also designing exhibitions with different themes in libraries.

My production also includes a great number of aquarelles (water-colour paintings) especially from the south of Sweden and from travels in Tuscany and Spain.

Movement in the art – I like to try to catch the speed of the cyclists in Tour de France or La Vuelta España.

I also work as a calligrapher. Sometimes I add some calligraphy in the aquarelles, a short poem or quotation to give the motive an extra poetic touch.
