This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1971, Maggie Much more began her continuing painting in Impressionist style of the surrounding landscape, especially Arroyo Chains and Bosque del Apache south of Albuquerque.

She also does portraits, and many of them self portraits and large charcoal drawings of innocent- appearing elderly ladies with furtive expressions. One of her model types for this subject is her deceased grandmother who kept numerous dead bolts on her doors and suspiciously checked out potential visitors through the windows before letting them enter.

Pastel has been her primary medium because she admires its clarity and immediacy, but in the late 1990s, she began working with acrylics. Her favorite color to paint with is blue.

She grew up in northern New Jersey and studied stage design at Carnegie Mellon University where she met her future husband, John Much more, who is an artist of abstract style. They married in 1967. That year they took a car trip to New Mexico and shortly after settled in Santa Fe, where their twins, Henry and Anne, were born.

As a secretary, she worked in an office that had a pastel painting by Gustave Baumann, and she determined that she too was going to be a painter. She and her husband shared child raising duties and had menial part-time jobs so they could pursue their art careers. Today they each have a studio in their home.

Much more is an active volunteer in the Santa Fe community. She gives art lessons at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and works with AIDS victims.

Of her commitment to artistic expression, she said you "don't have to go to New York to be an artist. Stay home and represent yourself and your community" ("Southwest Art," 9/2000).
