Maggie moved to the South Hams in 2005, having lived and worked in Oxfordshire for 25 years. A love of drawing since childhood led her to study painting at A level, which she intended to specialise in when she trained as a teacher. An inspirational ceramics tutor, Eric Rankin, changed Maggie’s pathway and working with clay became a passion and her main subject at college.
Completing a 3 year City and Guilds Watercolour course, encouraged Maggie to experiment more with mixed media and different art techniques and helped her return once more to painting.
She is a member of Press Gang Printmakers, based in Salcombe and has been working with drypoints, monotypes, collagraphs and producing prints created using a type of clay [ Fragmentseries]
Maggie has always been interested in textiles and incorporates this in her art work, working recently on memory collages which involve layering torn prepared papers, fabric, photographs and text.
