Maggie Warkentin at the Gallery at the Mattick's Farm

For over 25 years, Maggie Warkentin satisfied her artistic and creative passion, as a professional interior designer. She was a part-time Interior Design faculty member at Lethbridge College. Also, she founded and operated Interior Innovations, Inc., an interior design firm in Southern Alberta, which was sold when Maggie and her husband, Vern, relocated to Sidney, BC in 2008.

In the late 1990s, Maggie ‘puttered’ in water colours for a couple of years. However, in 2010, when time became available to seriously pursue visual arts, she decided to investigate the many new possibilities available to express her love of all things creative. Originally self-taught, Maggie has taken several water colour classes since moving to Sidney.

In 2012, after coaxing from family and friends, she began to submit her work for exhibitions and art shows.

Maggie believes her style is still evolving. Meanwhile she enjoys exploring a variety of mediums as she continues to experiment, learn and grow.
