Artist's Statement:
"Creating works of art is a personal journey which never ends. The greatest joy for me is when I can share the experience. The process is one which often surprises me, and I am thrilled when I have communicated with the viewer. I strive to make people respond to my work and find excitement in the world of art."

About the Artist:
Maggie has been painting and creating ceramic works for over 20 years. Growing up the the Chicago area, Maggie not only experienced art through the resources of the city, but more importantly, through family involved in the visual arts professionally.
