Maggie Carroll | MIAD ’23
Hi! I am an illustrator and fine artist based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am currently attending the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design to earn a BFA in Illustration.
I enjoys drawing dogs, landscapes, and architecture, people.
I am a huge fan of animation and enjoy drawing while listening to Jazz or 80s Japanese Pop.
Artist Statement (2020):
My sketchbook and paints travel with me most places I go. I love to try to capture a memory of the mood, the light, and the feeling of the places I’ve been, either in the studio or en plein air. I like to take my observations and techniques from my fine art and apply it to my illustration. I want to pair a level of believability in my subjects and setting with a level of whimsy and fantasy that is found in illustration.
I work both digitally and traditionally. I enjoy painting, drawing, and messing around in other various mediums. My work is mainly inspired by observation, travel, and artists I admire.
My goal as an artist is to depict beauty and to make people happy as well. I like to create beautiful art to share with others.
I am currently a sophomore studying illustration at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.
