Artist and Art teacher Maggie Cameron has lived and worked locally for the past 15 years. Her latest work can be seen as a series of thoughts and meditations which touch upon issues such as the environment, identity, beauty and the journey of life. The recurring symbols of the nautilus shell, the spiral, the wave and the circular form help to serve as reminders of this journey as well as becoming motifs which indicate repetition, protection or encasement. Her series of mixed media pieces also aim to explore meaning through process, often using found, discarded or torn objects or papers to investigate both material and symbolic properties. The techniques and processes Maggie works with are diverse, including collage, printmaking, encaustic wax, and embroidery as well as incorporating the more traditional media of drawing and painting to produce a rich and layered effect.
