About Maggy Dykstal

Maggy was born to a small dynasty of Polish craftsmen, illustrators, inventors, and designers. Her childhood home in the Great Lakes region featured not only hills and cornfields, but elaborate mosaics on the bathroom counters and 12-foot metal flowers in the garden. She pulled her first all-nighter helping her uncle and her grandmother glue clocks to a fiberglass cow. Clearly she was doomed at an early age.

Today, her work still carries the same sense of quirkiness and resourcefulness that she learned from her family, and weaves in a love of narrative and story that’s all her own.
