Maggie Barra is a fantasy artist and Illustrator living in Lake Oswego in the state of Oregon I am inspired by the magical ivy covered woods and misty pacific coastline.

She couldnt imagine a place on this earth without her magical worlds. A world without the wee folk and the realm of Faerie is just nowhere she could imagine or want to be.

To create their world is to breath.

Thank you all for taking the time to view my art and hope one is accepted. One way can be learned by starting to see the magic in everything. Sometimes it seems to be hiding but it is always there. The more we can see the magic in one thing a tiny flower, a mango, someone we love, then the more we are able to see the magic in everything and in everyone.

Where does the lavender field stop and the sky begin?
