Margareta Krantz – Textile and Mixed Media Artist

Nowadays my art work is mainly concentrated on my own mixed textile technique, which could be described as follows:
Printing and painting on large pieces of cotton and linen fabrics. Cutting forms with knife or scissors from selected parts of
the fabric. Then there is the process of composition – a “puzzle”, directly on the walls in my studio or sometimes on the floor
– and when I’m ready to finish my work, I put the pieces together with my sewing-machine.
