Maggie Scruggs

Thanks for being here.


I was born and raised in South Georgia- a place where I experienced deep heat in the summers, playing with turtles in the back yard, a great divide in social groups, and a disciplined up bringing- all of which inform my life today.

I graduated from the University of Georgia and earned a degree in journalism and studio art. I chose Athens as my home where I am the manager of Shakti Power Yoga Athens and work as an artist. When I’m not teaching yoga, working, or painting, I am running, playing tennis, listening to a podcast, or reading.

My work has themes of tension and is often cheeky. I say ‘yes’ to almost any show, invitation to exhibit, commission, or collaboration so just ask! I sell my work through conversation and instagram (there’s a button at the bottom of this page to connect!)
