Maggie paints from her studio at The Loveland Art Studiosand from her family hide-away in the beautiful hills of Kentucky. An avid 'plein air' painter, she often chooses to make nature her studio wherever she may travel.
ARTIST STATEMENT An abstract impressionist
Whether painting out in nature or tucked away with music at the studio, when standing at my easel wandering among the illuminated paths, I am guided by joy toward sauntering trails and adventures of beauty. Hike more trails! There are many, many ways to the mountaintop.
McCartney RAM Wild Life Red Rose Speedway
Creating a painterly narrative of Paul McCartney's music catalog since 1970 is an ambitious undertaking to be sure, and one that continues to fill my days with immense delight, wonder, curiosity, and joy. I have delved deep into McCartney's body of work through both pencil sketches and full paint studies, doing one of each for each song. These 500+ sketches and then 500+ studies of exploratory research have created a momentum that has inspired me to take a more comprehensive look at each album. This in turn has given birth to a desire to also represent each album with its own much larger painting. This project is most definitely a work in progress. In the meantime, here are several sketchbooks to enjoy!
