Maggie Grier oil paintings (Birmingham, Alabama)
Maggie Grier oil paintings reflect her years as a self-taught painter and her passion for discovery and design. She received her bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Painting for several years for her own enjoyment and selling her work through local shops and decorators while working in engineering – yes she designed hydraulic power units and valve systems – she made a change. In 2005 she made painting her life’s work, and she committed herself full-time to the pursuit. She paints at her studio just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Her studio companions are her pup, her bunny and more fur babies.
Maggie’s style incorporates watery-thin layers of oil on canvas which creates a great depth to her paintings. Her recent collection is inspired by fantasy works as an uplifting approach to our current times. Maggie’s travels reflect in her paintings as well.
