MAGGIE WARKENTIN
Canadian Artist

About Maggie...

 

Maggie was born in Glasgow, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1968.   From an early age, she had a passion to draw, design and create.  Therefore, it was a natural step for her to pursue a career in interior design.   She, her husband Vern and family, lived in Calgary and Lethbridge.  In 2008, she sold her interior design firm and she and Vern 'retired' to Vancouver Island.  However, they returned to Calgary in 2017 when twin grandchildren arrived. 

 

Maggie began painting in watercolours as a hobby and her inspiration was the surrounding natural beauty in Alberta and BC.     Now, her art medium is acrylics and she describes her art style as a composite of realistic and whimsical modern impressionism.   In her 30+ years as a professional interior designer, Maggie's 'art' was to create beautiful spaces which fulfilled the desires and dreams of clients.   Now as a full-time artist, she draws on much of her design experience to create paintings.  Through the capture of light, many layers of paint and bold interpretive lines, she brings a uniqueness to her paintings which are colourful and detailed. 

 

Her art pieces have found homes throughout Canada and in USA, United Kingdom, Italy and Bermuda.

Memberships include Active membership in Federation of Canadian Artists.
