About This Journalist
After leaving an art program to pursue psychology — and after nearly 20 years away from any form of drawing — Maggie took a pen and ink class at the Art Alliance in Lemont, Pennsylvania, in 2017. Her passion for drawing came rushing back, and pen and ink immediately felt like the perfect medium and what had been missing from her art journey all along. Her art has always centered on the environment, most often including animals. Some of her favorite parts about working with ink are the crisp clean lines, textures, and shading that can be created with one simple tool.
Maggie’s work has been featured in several shows including the Central Pennsylvania Arts Festival, and she has participated twice in a large-scale wood carving event called Big Ink. Maggie sells her work locally through the Lemont Gallery Shop and The Makery in downtown State College. Maggie lives in State College, Pennsylvania with her husband, two girls, and three dogs.
