Hello and welcome! I’m Maggie Summers and I’m an illustrator and designer. Currently, I travel the USA, drawing and painting my view of the world around me. I’m inspired by hikes in nature, exploring the history and museums of the towns I travel through, and in browsing shops for vintage textiles, children’s picture books, and quirky items.
I have a degree in graphic design and illustration, studying at SC4 in Michigan and at Kent State University in Ohio. While living in California and working as an in-house graphic designer creating work for editorial, print and web, then later in a corporate environment, I felt something was missing. It was then that I began to pursue my first love, illustration. I felt that I had come home.
I enjoy creating colorful, detailed illustrations. To the viewer, I aim to evoke a sense of wonder and playfulness with a touch of whimsy. I work both digitally and traditionally, often combining them together, depending on the project.
Should you have any questions or would like to say hello I’d love to hear from you!
