Maggie Hurley is a trained artist, but long before she discovered her desire to paint, Maggie wanted to save animals. As a child, she would often search for injured birds, placing them in a shoebox and nurturing them back to health. It's no surprise that she gravitates toward our flying friends now with her artwork. Maggie's collection of acrylic birds ranges from the Northern Cardinal to the Winter Wren, with a cast of distinct characters—often featuring human-like expressions—in between. Today, she lives and paints in Richmond, California, which is home to Point Isabel Park, a stunning spot to see shoreline birds.
