I am often inspired by a memory of my past, and daily energies and interactions with my friends, family and garden.”

MTM Hobbes
(Port Moody Art Association)

Margarita Hobbes is a multidisciplinary artist living in the Greater Vancouver area of BC, Canada. She is emerging as an artist dedicated to exploring different media and methods to make art and promote creativity. With playfulness and curiosity, Margarita uses both digital and analog equipment and materials to supplement her creative process. She produces art pieces that investigate the concepts of connection and time. Passionate about the environment, many of her works are made and assembled with repurposed materials.

Margarita has completed several bodies of abstract work; exhibiting in group and solo shows in the province of BC.

“MTM Hobbes is inspired by colours and shapes of the natural environment, and is obsessed with past events that have occurred in her life. She looks for what might not immediately be apparent to the naked eye. Her work is a study of shape and movement conveyed through line, texture, layers and colour.”
