The work speaks for itself, but I am also a fan of Margaterann herself. For me, knowing and liking the artist adds even more to the work.
She studied at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1991 and then worked as a freelance designer. A desire to experience other areas of artistic practice led her to explore etching and lithography. She has also studied paper-making, and the use of paper in an innovative manner is fundamental to her work.
What I like most about Margaterann is that she is utterly true to herself. She isn't inspired by what sells. For her, it's about the creation of the work and her development as an artist. This is a rare quality indeed, and I admire it greatly. She will take time and space to live and development and to see in what direction her work grows. Having her work in the gallery, and the reaction that follows, is always an exciting experience.
