Maggie says...


"I am inspired by the ordinary things in the urban environment, many of which are transient and ephemeral.  Much of my recent work has focussed on ‘edgeland’ locations, the often neglected places which are neither town nor country and are in a constant state of change, either through decay or redevelopment, and which are a rich metaphor for memory and identity.

My work shows my love of colour and texture. I enjoy using a range of different techniques, paint, print and textiles, and while my practice focusses primarily on painting, in this space at the theatre, due to the need to work tidily, I intend to spend more time making things from which I can print."
