Maggii Sarfaty is an impressionist painter working in oil and watercolor, capturing the coastal beauty of the Delmarva Peninsula.
Born in 1965 in Baltimore Maryland, Maggii has had a life long love affair with art. Her artistic Mother and Grandmother encouraged her at a very early age to notice subtleties in light and color in her surroundings. Maggii studied at The Maryland Institute College of Art and began a career as a muralist, decorative painter and part time theatrical set designer.
In 2015 Maggii entered her first Plein Air competition winning a prize and selling her painting right off the easel. This small success prompted an immersion into the plein air experience.The joy of painting from life in the open air has been a driving factor in her growth as an artist.
Maggii is especially inspired by master impressionists, Mary Cassat, Joaquin Sorolla and Claude Monet. A special thanks goes to her good friend and mentor, PAE alumni Diane DuBois Mullaly who invited her to paint regularly with Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay. Her encouragement and support has been invaluable
Maggii enjoys teaching oil and watercolor at The Academy Art Museum, The Ocean City Center for the Arts and The Dorchester Center for the Arts. She is a member of Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay and The Working Artists Forum
