About Maggi McDonald

Best known for her bright abstract artworks, artist and surface designer Maggi McDonald’s work is characterized by bold strokes in her signature vibrant colour palette.

Working mostly in acrylics and using mainly a palette knife when painting, her works are intuitive and expressive as she draws inspiration from the world around her, especially the natural beauty of both South Africa where she grew up, and Australia which she now calls home.

Graduating with a Diploma in Surface Design from ISCD in 2015, Maggi has established herself as an emerging artist and talented surface designer.

“In a world where we often race through life at a fast pace, painting has taught me to slow down and be still in the moment. It is the axis of my spinning wheel.”
