Margi Grill has worked as a visual artist for more than 10 years, exhibiting with a diverse group of galleries and venues. She has received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Arts and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Art History from the University of Minnesota.

My practice as a painter begins with my immediate and intimate environment. The source material for my work is often taken from within walking distance from my residence, a part of the city that is both industrial and that contains large open spaces. I am drawn to a tension in the landscape where human-made spaces overlap with areas permitted to grow wild. I am also interested in how those boundaries have shifted through generations and continue to change. Through a meditative process of painting, my work begins to take its shape somewhere between abstract painting and observational illustration. I typically work with layers of wash created with water soluble oils that often resemble traditional watercolors. This becomes a time intensive process, allowing me to reflect on my source of inspiration and how it relates to larger environmental issues.
