Maggie attended OCAD in Toronto expecting to explore painting but instead came out with a love of woodworking and a desire to build a woodworking shop. The pieces of wood and other objects she utilizes in her art are those that we have imposed our mark on and nature reclaims. She moves freely between Fine Art and Artisan creating 3 dimensional paintings, sculpture and jewelry from her found treasures.
Recycling is a simple act with complex benefits. Discarded items are ripe with potential to be reincarnated as art that makes us smile, tell a story or evoke memories.
Maggie has been involved in several solo and collaborative shows though out the Region. She has been purchased by the City of Ottawa and is part of their collections.
