Artist Maggie Green was born and raised in the heart of New York City. She moved to Tampa Florida with her family in 1987. In 1995, Maggie graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Visual Communications, emphasizing graphic design and art. Shortly thereafter, she moved to Boston and found her first job in graphic design, and continued her hobby of fine art.
Even after living in such wonderful cities like New York and Boston, and reveling in the constant stimulus, she could not get rid of the sand in her shoes. She returned to Tampa to continue here career in graphic design, while and rocking n rolling in a local band as tambourinist & dancer.
Currently, she is the Exhibits Graphic Designer at The Florida Aquarium. Some of the inspirations of her current works of art have come from the Aquarium. In her beaded paintings, she uses acrylic paints, glass beads and then paint dollops on top of the beads, creating a beautiful, sparkling, 3-dimensional work of art.
When she paints, she lets her mind and heart open to lead her hands. She has a passion for life and all that it encompasses, and she hopes that her art work will make you smile and maybe even make your heart beat a little faster!
