Margo Balcerek was Born in Poland and moved to the United States in the early eighties and earned her degree in Landscape Architecture from Washington State University. North Carolina has been her home for the last fifteen years. Her paintings express deep passion and love of the garden and landscape. Her favorite media is oils. Margo enjoys impressionists as well as abstract painters and was able to develop her own unique style. Equally at ease with spectacular bright colors of the southern skies as well as spectacular grays of the northern lands she is able to find her way to the “soul” of the land she paints. Sometimes, however, Margo is looking for inspiration on the “inside”. This is when her abstract pieces are created. Margo’s subjects include places around the world which she visited personally or “in spirit.
Margo’s paintings are appreciated for their diversity, spectacular color palette, uniqueness, emotional depth, their various moods and pleasing composition.
