"Their Tender Hearts"
Maggie Kerrigan is a visual artist residing and creating in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She specializes in altering books through a process of deconstruction and reconstruction. Each book used in her art is carefully curated so that both book and artwork amplify each other. Literature is already one of the greatest vehicles of imagination. Ideas flow from author to paper to reader. Through Maggie's art, the pages and words are further transformed to fuel imagination to a higher degree. Each viewer takes away a different meaning and connection from the altered book.
