She lets connection flow from her,
covering the masses in her paint.
She allows her art to speak,
as her soul mission,
She deeply desires to bring back connection
flooding a disconnected world.
Maggie’s Bio: The Artist
Maggie grew up in the inner city of New Orleans. Even though she loved her birth city and hometown, she had a passion for the horse world. When leaving New Orleans with her family to start a new life after hurricane Katrina, Tallahassee FL proved to be a better location to pursue her dream.
Simply riding horses wasn’t enough for Maggie, and though she had limited experience at this point, she entered the Extreme Mustang Makeover, held in Fort Worth, Texas. The challenge to receive a wild Mustang, to train him for 4 months and then to show him off was very rewarding for Maggie. Upon returning to Fort Worth, she achieved 8th overall in the youth division competition and also got to keep her mustang, which she aptly named Trip.
At the age of 18, and upon graduating from high school, Maggie moved to Texas on her own to begin working for different horse trainers. She also waitressed on the side and picked up face painting gigs.
At the age of 23, in December of 2019, Maggie tragically lost her sister and best friend Lacey. After the funeral, Maggie returned to pursue her horse career. The weight of her loss really hit due to the arriving of Lacey’s first year death anniversary. Maggie took some time off to allow herself to grieve. Unknowingly and unintentionally…Lacey’s passing birthed in Maggie a new career.
Maggie’s style has grown and continues to evolve. She says, “I have so much I want to paint, I just can’t do it fast enough!” Maggie knows first hand how art heals and is thrilled to share it with the world.
Just 6 months into Maggie’s art career, she donated a painting that was auctioned for $24,000 toward NRHA crisis fund, held in Las Vegas at The Run For A Million. The rendering was a 4’ by 10’ reining stop of two side by side co-champions at the RFAM in 2019. She named the painting “Remember Me.” This painting marks the first year of celebration for RFAM, but also marks the first major success of Maggie’s full time art career.
Maggie now realizes her art can accomplish great things. She also discovered that artfully expressing herself, passion and pain alike…is her true, primary calling. She has big dreams. She is prolific in the production of originals, commission pieces. Prints of works are also being made available. Maggie resides in Whitesboro, Texas…but there is no limit to where her art can go or where her art can take her.
