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.
