About Maggie Nancarrow

My marker artwork comes out of my many and varied experiences, but in the end they all boil down to this quote: I am simply trying to show how incredibly wound together we all are.

My marker work is all done with cheap, mainstream markers such as Sharpies, Bic, and regular writing pens. I also have a few artist markers to cover the colors I don't have. The marker series began in the winter of 2008, and was predominantly inspired by the four months I spent studying at the University of Ghana. Since then, the predominant motifs in my images have been cities and colors linked to the colors of beautiful African fabrics. The themes of my drawings got more complicated and more intense as my experiences also got more complicated and intense: I traveled, teaching English in Korea and in the slums of Mumbai. I returned home, faced my country confused and lost, worked with refugee children and their mom's, and made many dear friends. Now I attend Divinity School at the University of Chicago.

In the end, it all comes together in this art: each piece, liberation all bound up together.

'If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.' Aboriginal Activist Group, Queensland, 1970s.
