She captures something spiritual; what she does is more than a collage, more than a tapestry, more than a quilt; she goes way beyond the bounds of any decorative sewing craft or textile artwork

Margo Styan is a quilter, Canadian, a dedicated mother, and an inspired artist who is a Baha’i. Like many artists she has chosen to set up shop on the internet so she can reach out to other quilters, and to people who love to hang inspirational art on their walls. I only know Margo through her delightful quilt slide shows, her artist’s statement and the words of her partner.

There is a great need for peace and tranquility in the world today. Every living being can testify to this. We must stop, look, listen, and meditate upon all the wondrous things that the Creator has provided for our well being and growth. My art is intended to help those who stop for a while to look and then listen to their own inner beatings of their heart which urges them to meditate and discover truth for themselves and help them “grow and develop and appear in the utmost beauty”. I believe we all have a gift that needs to be discovered and offered to this existence, and thus peace and tranquility can be found.
