Margrit was born in Brennan, Germany but moved to London and studied at The Wimbledon School of Art gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art followed by a postgraduate course in print making.
For many years her work has been influenced by Zen philosophy. Zen means stillness and it is her aim to create images and objects which reflect some of the aesthetics of Zen such as simplicity, clarity and restraintto convey a feeling of serenity.
She likes tactile earthiness and her pictures are built rather than painted. She uses all sorts of natural raw materials which have been the source of our creativity since pre-historic times.
