Maggie Rose is a Canadian artist currently living in New York while teaching at the New York Academy of Art. After graduating cum laude from the Academy in 2001, Maggie continued her training at the Michael Aviano Atelier and studied drawing with Michael Grimaldi. She now paints full time and is passionate about teaching and passing on the training she feels blessed to have received.
Maggie's work is primarily figurative. She prefers to work from life and often sculpts small figurines when working on subjects that require photo reference. Her primary focus is the continued exploration of the human body, of the color and translucency of flesh, and in objects which we identify with the body such as clothing and dressmaker forms.
Maggie has exhibited her work at various galleries in addition to numerous other juried exhibitions at venues such as Phillips de Pury, Sotheby's, and Christie's.
