Artist Maggie Dean displays paintings at Champlain Library

The Champlain Library will have a display of paintings by Maggie Dean for the next few months. Maggie Dean was born in Montreal and now resides in Dalkeith, Ontario with her husband. Since childhood, she always drew and painted and thanks her parents who were instrumental in fostering this need by keeping her supplied with the tools to create.

Dean studied art in high school and attended the Sir George Williams Art School in Montreal, John Abbott College in Ste. Anne de Bellevue and the Santa Raparta Graphics Studio in Florence, Italy. Her time is divided between painting, creating unique stained glass windows, mosaics, her husband, her horses, her cats, gardening, cooking and volunteer work in the community.

Dean is always creating, forever reinventing how she sees the world around her.  Colour, light and design are very important to her and the use of bold, unmixed colours are her trademark.  Her work has been described as semi-primitive, graphic and somewhat naïve, perhaps a reflection of the artist within.

To view some of Dean’s paintings, visit the Champlain Library at 94 Main Street in Vankleek Hill.  For more information call the library at 613-678-2216.
