Artist Statement
Maggie Dillon is an award-winning textile portrait collage artist from Sarasota, Florida. Influenced by the nostalgia of old film, Maggie captures candid moments from the 1930’s to the 1950’s in her textile work. Particularly choosing images that appear photo-journalistic, her work celebrates an unawareness of the camera that is simultaneously ordinary and meaningful. It evokes a wistfulness, a feeling of nostalgic happiness, but also loss of something deeply important and soulful. There’s no showing off, just pure moments... in the moment.

Maggie has won a number of awards in fine art exhibitions and textile art shows, including first place in Florida’s Finest, Art Center Sarasota, 2018. Her work and articles have been published in books and magazines such as "Art Quilting Studio: Series Showcase" and "Dare to Dance: an Art Quilt Challenge." Maggie Dillon has a B.A. in Fine Arts from Flagler College, Saint Augustine.
