Welcome to my website!

Some thoughts from famous artists!

 Paul Cezanne -- "We live in a rainbow of chaos. "

 Vincent Van Gogh -- "Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul. "

 Henry Moore -- "There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it."

Maggie Barnes - Bio & Resume


Art is a journey of self-exploration and challenge.  I find the outcome of my work is often liberating and enlightening. Having a love for a wide spectrum of art from abstract to realism my art is a celebration of diversity. It is also self confronting to stretch myself to achieve higher goals with each new piece of work.  Art is a magical experience and passion, it happens when time ceases to exist for me.


My studio is currently located in my home.  I create my art with multiple mediums including oil and acrylic paints on canvas, wood and museum board. Commissioned work includes portraits, digital art and photo restoration.  I also enjoy doing digital art and photography, sculpture and linoleum cuts.

In addition to creating my own art I have taught children for many years to express themselves artistically using all manner of techniques including painting with acrylics and watercolors, drawing, sculpture and printing.

My work is featured in private and corporate collections across the USA and England.  My work has been in galleries in San Francisco and Sonoma & Napa counties, in Omaha my work has been on display at The Frame Service, The Avenue, Heller Art Images, The Designers, Field Club Annual Art Show and The Chamber of Commerce.  Currently my work is on display at Bizarre Gallery at Village Point.  Check back to see updates lists of Galleries and Events.


I have returned to Omaha after many years in California, my former memberships were the Petaluma Arts Association (board member and chairman of several committees), Petaluma Arts Council, the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, Valley of the Moon, Marin Artisans and Healdsburg, Napa & Sonoma Arts Associations.
