Tumbling underneath waves amidst effervescent aqua tones, Margaret Juul’s compositions are fresh and original expressions of the colors and patterns of water in motion. The artist uses her imagination to distill the kinetic essence of something never at rest. Margaret’s artistic life has always been inspired by water. From the shores of her Long Island birthplace and Chicago’s Lake Michigan to the spectacular tropics of Tampa Bay, water has held an unwavering hold on her spirit — fluidity, intuition and reflective volatility.
“The natural world is my inspiration. I believe art represents a journey through the infinite, a realm of abstract possibilities found in the elegance of nature, time and space. My goal is to capture a moment — full of movement, life, color, scent and sound, never experienced the same way twice — communicated through the painter’s brush.”
As a successful professional artist and designer for more than two decades, Margaret has cultivated a long list of loyal supporters. Her work displays prominently in a wide range of locales — from celebrity homes, corporate lobbies to international commercial and hospitality sites. One of the high points of Margaret’s career came after the Iraq Museum International requested Rough Wake for Baghdad’s 2010 International Poster Exhibition. The painting remained on display for nearly two years, applying Margaret’s unique perspective to an area of the world renowned for ancient culture.
Margaret began her training in fine art studies in 1988 at Chicago’s Columbia College. Since that time, her work has been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions and is included in collections around the country. She lives and works in Saint Petersburg, FL, dividing her time between her painting studio and providing art consultation since 2011.
Margaret is a member of The National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society.
