• Maile McCarthy lives with her husband and son in Redwood City, CA.


  • I moved a lot as a child, each move bringing with it the uncertainty and excitement discovering new places and new people.  I was a perpetual new kid, always trying to find where I fit in. It was difficult at times, but it profoundly shaped who I am today. 

    My highest aspiration is that my art can help people feel understood and accepted. I’m constantly studying, learning and exploring new techniques to help me reach that goal.

    When I’m not making art, you can find me reading, gardening and (bit by bit) improving my skills at the banjo.
