Maggie Matthews

Born in 1964 - United Kingdom

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Wales, Maggie Matthews moved to West Penwith in 1988 and has since gained recognition as one of Cornwall’s leading abstract painters. Inspired by aerial views of the shore and the landscape, she can often be found walking the cliffs, sketchbook in hand, noting and sketching the shapes and patterns below her, which are then translated into paintings in the studio.

Her work has been exhibited widely throughout Cornwall and the UK, most notably in The City Gallery, The Air Gallery and Thompson’s Gallery in London. She has also exhibited in America on Nantucket Island and New York in the ‘White Columns’ exhibition which is on a worldwide tour.

In 1999 BBC Wales Broadcasting Studio commissioned a permanent collection of Maggie’s paintings which are on display during broadcasts.
