Margaret Switala

Margaret had her mind set on becoming a full time artist at age of fifteen when she won her first provincial students art award. She has attended Red River College for Advertising Arts and also has taken advanced oil painting lessons at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

Her preferred medium is oil paints, but occasionally works in pastels and mixed media. Although she is known for her surrealism paintings (thinking outside the box), she also does still life studies and prairie scenes.

Margaret has participated in international art exhibitions both group and solo over the years. She has also received grants from the Manitoba Arts Council and Winnipeg Arts Council for artistic development. Margaret’s artwork can be found in many private collections across Canada, Europe and USA.
