Hi……….My name is Maggie Smith and I am a self-taught acrylic artist. My paintings display my love of colour and my passion for flowers, animals and nature.
I was born in England and immigrated to Canada when I was 5 years old. My mum was incredibly creative and she inspired me with her love of quilting and gardening and her use of magnificent colours. I took an interest in art at an early age watching my sister create beautiful acrylic paintings. My artistic and creative interests were kept alive with fabric art, stained glass, gardening, crafts and photography.
I can always find beauty around me and have taken thousands of photographs to capture those special moments. My true journey as an artist began in the Spring of 2020 when Covid forced us to be indoors. With so much time on my hands I began an in-depth series of on line workshops to discover the intricacies of acrylic painting and I fell in love with it!
Full of inspiration and experimentation, I have taken my love of colour, with a dash of humour, and have created colourful and imaginative canvas creations that are sure to put a smile on your face and the warmth of love in your heart.
I am now on a journey of discovery experimenting and playing with colours and texture. I am truly blessed when my art, created from my heart, touches another persons heart.
