Biography Artist Margareta Ternström
Was born in Stockholm 1933. Stockholm. During her life she has studied art in Stockholm, London and New York. She had her first exhibition in Hong Kong, 1967. This was followed by series of exhibitions held in London, Paris, Tunis, Monte Carlo and New York. Margareta has also had exhibitions at different museums and art-galleries in Sweden.
Since early 2000 Margareta's artistic medium has mainly been Computer Art.
Her later art production is often characterised by circular forms of cosmic dimension.
These open up windows to the unknown for the observer. Her fascination for subjects of infinitely large proportions as well as those which are invisible to the naked eye
are closely evident in her artwork.
I think from the beginning it was very natural that I received a driving force from my home. My mother was a sculptress and my father was very interested in nature and that certainly has had a great influence on me”.
