Owner of Maggie B. French Illustration & Animation
Maggie B. French is an artist currently living in Charlotte, NC. Her work generally encompasses the statement: “As simple does not mean easy, colorful does not lack depth.”
After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a BFA in Studio Art, Maggie spent two years teaching elementary and middle school art. But in her off-hours from school, Maggie would dabble in a variety of creative endeavors. What began with a watercolor house portrait here and a wedding illustration there, grew into a full-time business.
While still continuing illustration and graphics work, Maggie devotes most of her time to painting large-scale landscape paintings. From the high country to the low country, Maggie hopes to capture to essence of place through high chroma color & bold mark-making. In particular, living in Savannah brought infinite art-making inspiration. Through her gestural style, Maggie hopes to convey the beautiful oxymoron of wildness and stillness that is the southeast coast. Check out her webshop here.
