Margarita Cimadevila, born in Sada, A Coruña, graduated in Chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela and worked as a teacher of Physics and Chemistry in different Secondary Schools in Galicia. At present, she teaches at the IES Urbano Lugrís in A Coruña, being the headmistress of the school.
In parallel with her teaching activity, she has carried out different studies and done courses connected with art. Her early pictorial work was greatly influenced by the roots of her land, being seashells one of her recurrent themes and also showing interest in Galician petroglyphs and ancient cultures.
As a result of her participation in the HST03, school for teachers of the European Laboratory of Nuclear Research, CERN, in Geneva, her work undergoes a radical change and she focus on mixing her two worlds, offering an approach in which Science and Art merge and entwine as shown in the series:
- Science and Art: Particle Physics I
- Science and Art: Particle Physics II
- Investigadoras Galegas
- Science and Art: ENCIGA/CERN
- Ciencia EX AEQUO
which have an artistic, spreading and didactic nature.
