After graduation, she lived in Mexico where the artist studied batik, ceramics and silk-screening. The negative space in batik, really resonated in the way she thought in printmaking. There also was the element of surprise when the wax was removed after the last dye bath. Maggie worked in that medium for about 20 years, represented in galleries in Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, Maui, to Boston. The artist also did many commisioned works for the Bank of America throughout Southern California, as well as hotels and Disney throughout the country. Her batiks were very painterly, which she used both direct painting techniques of dye, then wax and then submersion of entire pieces in the dye bath. Her pieces were quite large as well, 36" x 46".
In 1980, Maggie got married, moved to Connecticut and continued to study printmaking, pastels, drawing and painting. Now single, she lives in Lebanon with her dog and cat.
Maggie has spent the last 20 years working in linoleum prints. She loves the immediacy, the intimacy with small spaces. Her work is inspired by her animals, animals of my friends, fold art from travels, nature and the small cameos of life and whimsy of nature around her.
