Maggie will talk about the diversity of habitats and wildlife in eastern Connecticut in relation to the paintings in the exhibition, “Inside the Natural World of Jan Beekman” and the unique and beautiful aspects of birds, plants, and places that inspire appreciation of nature and our place in it.

After graduating, she studied Landscape Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design.
