Maggie Simpson - the artist
Studying the lives and works of the impressionist masters has provided me with constant inspiration and challenge to explore - Often I will work on a painting in watercolours and pastels while at the same time rendering the image in oils. Problem solving in various mediums is an intricate part of the journey. As a result, the final birthing of my painting evolves to a work that rarely depicts that which I envisaged at conception. The element of surprise keeps me "forever a student".
