Painting for me is to do with responding to my inner and outer life; a contemplative activity, drawing connections between what is seen and unseen. Marks and colour are often used intuitively to express my experience of the world. Forms appear as a definite presence as well as in many cases a clue or symbol of something that is otherwise hidden and intangible. The paintings are derived in part from landscape, although they are not descriptive of any particular place or time, rather a space into which I project a more inward-looking experience. It is an appropriate context as my interest in the elemental nature of the world can be explored with issues such as energy, light, source, transience and change. The drama of the Scottish weather, the ancient landscapes, rolling seas and ever-changing light are what most inspire me.


Maggie New moved from Yorkshire to Morayshire in 1996 to pursue her painting in an environment that was very inspiring to her. As well as being a practicing artist for the past 35 years, she has also taught art and design at all levels on a full and part time basis until 2018.
Maggie exhibits regularly in Scotland and has work in private collections both nationally and internationally.
