About the Artist
Maggie Schallmo is a senior honors student at Radford University pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education.
“My family has deep ties in the folk art revival in North Carolina, as I am a direct descendant from Daniel Boone. My artwork, though, is quite different from my mother's and her fathers, as it is far more abstract in style. I take inspiration from cubism, surrealism, and pop art, and add a TON of my own flair!
My work is my way of expressing my deepest emotions and life changing experiences, and they together tell my story as a student, from high school to now. Since this is my first gallery opening and my honor's capstone, it's a collection of art in a variety of media that when in the same room tell an incredible story.”
