BIOGRAPHY

 

Margarita started her work while attending the Universidad Autonoma in Barranquilla, Colombia.  There, she was introduced to the wonders of watercolors, technique that she embraced wholeheartedly as a way to express her deepest feelings and impressions through the wide array of colors and mixtures available.  She then moved to Costa Rica, a country abundant with flowers, forests, and a huge array of contrasts that moved her even more to try to express everything that she was encountering.  She first started to experiment with engraving as a technique with the well known Costa Rican artist Adrian Arguedas and then moved back to watercolors where she had the opportunity to deepen her knowledge and improve her techniques with stablished artists such as Cristina Fournier and Max Rojas.  They both use watercolors but with very different techniques. Cristina pays a lot of attention to detail while Max prefers the heavy use of water to disperse the different colors.  Out of this, Margarita started to develop he own style which later evolved to collage.

 

The artist has participated in several contests and won various awards.  Her latest individual exhibit called “Sensacion de Colores” at the National Gallery in Costa Rica received high reviews.  Other exhibits were “Sueños y Recuerdos” (Dreams and memories) plus other joint exhibits at the Intercontinental Hotel, the French Alliance, the Coffee Institute and others, including a participation at the Human Rights Diversity exposition at the Fondazione Opera Campana del Caduti in Rovereto, Trento, Italy, the latest annual salon from the Costa Rican Association of Visual Artists at the Cartago Municipal museum and the latest Urban Memory exhibition in Barrio Amon, at the Costa Rican Technology Institute.
