Maggie Golinski, Painter
I work mostly in acrylics, inks and resins but occasionally clay and mixed media. I take joy in creating colorful artworks that represent what I see around me and in nature. I love the alchemy of inks and the flexibility of acrylics. I paint every day and view painting as a powerful intuitive, spiritual and creative practice.
I grew up in a small railway town in the south west of England surrounded by rolling hills, ancient pathways, iron age hill forts and mystical monolith circles. I spent my summers at my family’s farm on the outskirts of Krakow where colourful folk art, Polish culture and Krakowian legends such as the smok (dragon) under walls of the Wawel castle filled my imagination and were depicted in my early forays into art.
Since 2007 I have lived in the Dallas area calling McKinney home where I enjoy being part of the thriving and inspiring art community.
I’m a firm believer that art should not have to match your decor and I love to incorporate vibrant colours and abstract shapes and concepts into my paintings.Nothing makes me happier than painting and being creative; to me art should be joyfully vivid and fun.
My personal mantra is the quote “I make art to show my soul that I am listening.”
