MAGGIE WARKENTIN
Canadian Artist

About Maggie...

 

Maggie was born in Glasgow, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in the late 60s.   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 the arts, first in interior design and then in painting.  She, her husband Vern and family, lived in Calgary and Lethbridge before moving to Sidney, Vancouver Island where they spent nine years.   The siren call of grandchildren returned them to Alberta in 2017 and they now live in Calgary.

 

Maggie describes her art style as Modern Impressionism and she draws her inspiration of subject matter from the natural beauty surrounding us in Western Canada.  She is also greatly inspired by the paintings of Canada's Group of Seven - particularly Lawren Harris.   She now paints mainly in acrylics and is mostly self taught.   Through the capture of light, vivid colours, and the use of bold interpretive lines, she brings a unique interpretation to her paintings which are colourful and detailed.  

Her art pieces have found homes in USA, Italy, Bermuda, United Kindom and throughout Canada.      Memberships include Federation of Canadian Artists.
