Maggi Birchenough






Towards the end of last year, I started contacting the resident artists to see who wanted to take a month this year. I received an email from Maggi telling me she had been diagnosed with cancer. I sent occasional emails checking on how she was doing. In the last one, many months ago, she told me of a new treatment that she was trying and that she was feeling much better.

Sadly, yesterday I received an email from another former resident artist telling of Maggi's passing. I only knew her through emails but you could sense what a wonderful and sweet person she was. 

This is the beginning of Maggi's month last year. I am going to go through her posts and thank the Universe I knew her briefly. Thank you Maggi.

  1. A great loss for art everywhere. My thoughts are with the family. This is a difficult time for them. Been there with mom's alzheimers.
