Maggie Chalifoux strives to create something of beauty to capture the fleeting moment, a special feeling, or a thought. Finding inspiration from her life journey and observations of nature, she uses her experiences and skills in many media for her personal expression. Her processes are intuitive and spiritual whether the subject of the painting is abstract or figurative. She says that once the first brushstroke is made, the painting takes on a life of its own. Trusting this process, she allows the creativity to flow and lets that creative energy take charge. “That is always the best,” she says. “I love that moment.”
Ms. Chalifoux studied art and art history at Virginia Commonwealth University. She visits art museums and galleries wherever she goes. She has been painting professionally for over 25 years. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections and has been recognized by numerous awards.
