2013 Digital Color Artist
© 2017 Maggie Connell
Maggie Connell is the 2013 Artist.
Maggie has now been painting seriously for a decade and a half.
Her six week exhibition, Living with Wolves, is on display at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery in New South Wales.
The purpose of that exhibition is to create works about a fun and colorful life with dogs.
Over time, she has had varying styles.
Her moving oil paintings of owls, robins, magpies and other birds are from the wild and also after photos of
Steve Parish and Dave Watts.
Some of her earlier paintings are of happy colorful naive style people.
She has also painted portraits, still life and scenery and has exhibited drawings on paper and oils on metal.
Recently, under the influence of Mark Tobey's densely structured compositions,
she uses writing and symbols as a basis for watercolor paintings.
She has a gallery of still life metaphors including those titled: The Fall From Grace, An Enduring Relationship, Gossip,
An Integrated Group and The Third Cup of Wine.
The third cup of wine drank the man.
She has formally studied drawing, printmaking, painting and sculpture.
She attended Tafe in Alice Springs and for a term, at Broken Hill, and created art using these media at that time.
