As a child growing up in Montana, Maggi was inspired by her grandmother and mother, who were artists. She has studied under master painters H. Steven Oiestad, Laurie Stevens, Tom Gilleon, Grant Redden, Carolyn Anderson, Tucker Smith and others.
Maggi's goal is to paint what she loves and to make people smile. Typically, she paints and draws representational pieces in oil, pastel, and charcoal. Her favorite subjects are horses, mules and the people they own!
