Margaret Wasiuta, b. Poland -  Canada

margwasiuta@hotmail.com 

 

 Born in Poland, Margaret graduated with a Master's degree from the Faculty of Interior and Exhibit Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. Additionally, she completed the internationally acclaimed Paris College of Art summer program (PCA) in France. During her studies, Margaret was consistently recognised for her outstanding work in the creative discipline that she was most enamoured with: Painting.

 

Following her move to Canada, Margaret made a career out of designing and creating displays and exhibit materials for various architectural and retail applications. She later branched out into fashion styling, commissioned painting, interior design/arrangement, and special events staging. During this period of time, her paintings found homes in private collections in Canada, the United States, Poland, and France. In her spare time, Margaret facilitated several children's programs as a volunteer at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and Runnymede Public School.

 

Although she found this work to be innovative and exciting, the hectic pace and strict deadlines limited her ability to create personally meaningful artwork. In recent years, she has focused on bringing her inner experience to the canvas and hopes to connect with others through this genuine form of expression.
