Coconino National Forest - Soldier Pass Trail Hike

Coconino National Forest - Soldier Pass Trail Hike

Hello and welcome! I’m Maggie Summers and I’m an illustrator and designer. Currently, I travel the USA, drawing and painting the world around me. On any given day my studio is perched overlooking crystal clear lakes and oceans, majestic mountains and expansive deserts. 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 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 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!
