Biography: Margrit Schlatter, Flint Michigan
I am a self taught artist and call my art ART FROM THE HEART.
My introduction to art started in the 1970”s when a friend invited me to join her in a ceramics class at the Flint Institute of Arts. I worked in ceramics off and on for several years. In 2002 I felt the urge to try something new, so I bought paper and colored pencils and began drawing. From colored pencil I moved on to pastels, art markers and sometimes I add spray paint to create background colors.
I have exhibited throughout Genessee county, the Shiawassee Arts Center, Grand Rapids and at the Carr Center in Detroit.

It is my intention to create paintings that uplift and bring joy to others. Much of my inspiration is derived from the peaceful energy I enjoy when I am walking in the woods and also from the vibrant colors in my flower garden. Music and meditation lead me away from everyday concerns and into the creative flow that allows me to produce “Art from the Heart”.
