Maggie Rose received her Masters in Fine Art from the New York Academy, graduating cum laude, in 2001. She devotes the majority of her time to painting, working from her studio in Toronto, Canada. She currently exhibits in Toronto, New York, and Nashville, TN.
Maggie’s work is primarily figurative. She prefers to work from life, and often sculpts small figurines when working on subjects that require a photo reference. Her recent work focuses on weaving her love of sculpture, her form sense, and her passion for color into a painterly vision that speaks to each of the mediums, to the past and to the present.
In addition to maintaining a full-time studio practice, Maggie is passionate about teaching. Her Master Workshops, which she gives at the New York Academy several times a year, are always in high demand. She has also held workshops in Nashville, and teaches from her own studio, and several other locations across Canada.
