Hello and Welcome! I’m Maggie Summers and I’m an illustrative designer. I dreamt one day of traveling the US fulltime, drawing and painting the world around me. Now I'm living my dream! My husband and I travel in our home on wheels and on any given day my studio is perched overlooking crystal clear lakes and oceans, majestic mountains and expansive deserts. I’m inspired by our hikes in nature, exploring the history and museums of the towns we travel through, and in browsing shops for vintage textiles, children’s picture books, and mid century 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 focus exclusively on 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!
