Margaret Mayer

Growing up, Margaret Marya Mayer (aka Maggie) was always an artistic person, who recognized beauty in everyday life. Since childhood, she has experienced life in places all over the world from the Colorado Rockies to Europe and the Middle East. She lived in Atlanta, GA for most of her adult life and moved to Mississippi in 2019 to be near her elderly parents. Her father passed in 2021. Maggie is a Christ follower and she has three grown children and a big furry 15-pound black cat named Iris. Iris loves to hang out in her studio while she paints. Maggie currently works as a Marketing Graphic Designer for Mid South Rehab Services in Ridgeland, MS, and paints during her free time.

She grew up in Mississippi where her family owned a log house and land off the Natchez Trace Parkway. When her father was offered a two-year contract job in Saudi Arabia the family moved overseas so, Maggie, age 15 at the time got to see the world. Her faith in God, life on the farm, love of nature, and travels abroad greatly influence her work. 

"My hope with my work is to paint from my heart and bring joy to the viewer.”
