Hello! My name is Maggie, and I'm an artist, naturalist, and social justice organizer based in Durham, North Carolina.

I'm a jack of many trades and can be found doing any number of art and social justice related things in my work and free time. Often in my artwork, my subject of choice is plants, and I love to make botanical illustrations in various art mediums. Most often, I work in watercolors, pen and ink, and clay...and occasionally on Adobe Illustrator, though I much prefer being off the computer! I am just beginning to delve into being a freelance illustrator and logo designer.

I also spend much of my time as a donor organizer with Resource Generation and Solidaire Network, where I organize young class privileged people to redistribute their wealth, land, and power to social justice movements. On the side, I also teach geology and environmental studies to middle schoolers!

When I'm not drawing or organizing, I can be found tending to my garden full of North Carolina native plants in my front yard.
