Chioma Magret Nze, also known as Maggie Park, is a blogger/writer, graphic designer and illustrator. Her illustrations are based on fashion and art.
She started drawing in primary 4. “I was desk mates with a girl named Dora. She loved telling stories and as she told the stories she drew, every cloth, every character. At the end of her story, the paper will be filled with stick drawings. So I started drawing like that, then moved on to basic shapes, I guess that unlocked my talent, I developed more using paper and pencil. As the years progressed I started trying out different mediums to express my art, now I draw digitally through Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I moved from pen and paper to graphics, but I still cling to my traditional ways.
Speaking on what inspires her art, she says, “My art right now is Afro-centric. I love everything Africa and African and express it in my art. Occasionally I follow trends and I try to create new things since I draw mostly from imagination.”
