Artists Maggie Cochran

"My work is inspired by the coast, particularly the wild and beautiful coastline of Cornwall. I try to capture a moment of stillness in an ever changing landscape.

I am, and always have been an artist, though at times I just didn’t recognize it."

Maggie has a Fine Art degree from the University of Chichester and won the Cornwall Life Landscape Painter of the Year 2016.  She has exhibited widely in the UK, completed a number of large commissions and has work featured in two prestigious Cornish hotels, The Headland Hotel in Newquay and the Bedruthan Hotel in Mawgan Porth.

Maggie regularly donates to marine conservation charities, using her art to help conserve the marine environment that she is so passionate about.

 Maggie also enjoys sharing her love of painting with others, running workshops and artists’ networking events.

Her love of the sea started from an early age. With Maggie’s father in the navy her family was always on the move, the only constant in her childhood being the sea. She describes how being by the sea feels like home, and how finding a language of paint helps her understand who she is.
