Artist, Maggie White was born in England and introduced to painting at an early age when her grandmother, who was an artist, took her painting “ pleine air”. She won her first juried show award at 16, her High School art prize at 18, and continued her art interests by attending art school full time. She immigrated to Canada in 1975 and is now a Canadian citizen living on the West Coast of Canada. The West Coast is the inspiration for much of her work. She has had a successful art career spanning many years with many one-woman shows in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, Tofino and Calgary and her work has been shown across Canada. She has also participated in many juried shows.
