In her paintings, Maggie Cochran aspires to recreate the feeling of being on the beach - the freedom, joy, energy, serenity, the awe of the sheer beauty, power and magnificence of the coastal landscape. Her abstracted technique allows her to capture a sense of timelessness in the movement of the tides and weather as they roll in and out of the scene adding a calm contemporary feel to her work.
Maggie has a Fine Arts degree from the University of Chichester and has recently completed the one-year Porthmeor Programme in St Ives.
Having been obsessed with Porthmeor Beach at low tide for several years, her recent move to Falmouth and a residency at The Terrace Studios has given Maggie new sources of inspiration and she is looking forward to seeing where this takes her in 2022.
Maggie runs workshops to share her process and will be teaching for Sketchtrips in Provence on June 25th 2022 on an all-inclusive 7-night residential art course in water based oils, prices start at £1095pp - book here
