This website was created by family and friends of Monica in response to many requests to share her remarkable legacy of paintings and writings.

Monica Sjöö (1938-2005) was one of the foremost artists of our times. She also was an author and  pioneer feminist scholar, as well as a lifelong activist for peace, pagans, women, social justice, the environment and her beloved Mother Earth.

We have a huge Sjöö Art Gallery with 240 of her images, an auto-biography, a complete online book, a great variety of her articles, tributes and memories, photos and many other bits and pieces of interest.

Since her death Monica's work seems to be gaining more recognition in her home country of Sweden, where two recent exhibitions have been held in conjunction with a seminar about her life and work. Read about these in our Biography /On Going Events section.
May this online memorial allow old and new friends to appreciate the rich variety of her work and be inspired by the haunting beauty of images which can take us across dimensions of time and space!
