Greta Kotz is an illustrator and designer, based in the Twin Cities. She runs her own freelance business that includes illustration, graphic design, fine art, art festivals, and gallery shows. She earned her BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and is recognized by the Society of Illustrators. 

Observers and creators alike pick and pull from fine art, illustration, and graphic design, to orchestrate fresh ideas. As a multimedia artist, I am influenced by many different aspects of the visual arts and take pleasure in mastering elements of design in order to represent my own ideas. Through mark making, I balance the graphic quality of line and representational subject matter. Using mixed media, the work combines human nature, magical realism and contemporary illustration to create a sense of familiarity and wonder in the viewer.
