Maggie Cochran is a contemporary landscape painter. She graduated from the University of Chichester with a 2:1 degree in Fine Art in 2017 and since then she has been exhibiting her work across the South and South-West of England.
Maggie has always been drawn to the coastal landscape – that threshold between land and sea. Her work is inspired by the wild Cornish coast and by the Solent shores near her home. Her preferred medium is water-based oils and she loves the accidental that can happen when working with them. When possible she prefers to paint en plein air which facilitates an energy to her work. Her paintings capture a phenomenological sense of being in that landscape with the prevailing weather and light.
Maggie won the Cornwall Life Landscape Painter of the Year in 2016.
