Welcome to MaggieNancarrow.com, the personal creative portfolio and blog of Maggie Nancarrow, an artist, youth director, and church nerd.
I recently completed a Master of Divinity at the University of Chicago. I currently work as Director of Youth and Family Ministry & Director of Communications at a progressive and delightful church in the Twin Cities. I care about the theology of childhood, youth, social justice in the church, making my city better through interfaith cooperation, and finding meaningful, progressive Christian practice in the 21st century. I am hoping to become ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church.
I use my art as a way to express things that I can’t express in words. I use it as a meditative and prayer practice. I use mostly sharpies and pilot precise pens, because I believe that doing art shouldn’t be limited to people who can pay for fancy materials. I began to do this when I was twenty-one years old, having returned from Ghana. I wanted to express, in some way, the colors and twirling ideas that were left imprinted on my mind from my 4 months studying there.
I manage and maintain my own site. I am using the WordPress.org 2014 theme currently.
