Maggie Furniss, Princeton, NJ Member Since January 2011 Artist Statement I was born and raised in Poland where the emphasis on all-natural living and connection to nature was strong. I spent a lot of time outdoors, exploring and learning. As an adult, I now indulge my passion for nature observing and painting whatever is in season. I grow a variety of plants in my garden. This helps me to be mindful of the larger picture which so often gets lost in the shuffle of everyday tasks. Thank you for visiting.
