Parr has been commissioned to design and/or paint hundreds of signature murals for public spaces, malls, theme parks, cruise ships, stores, and private offices. She is known for creating iconic work that tells the story of a particular space. Her work becomes a focal point for visitors, photo ops, and company pride. Sometimes her work is more painterly, as in these examples; or more illustrative, as in her Illustration work. No matter what the medium, she brings a spirit of storytelling into her work.
"Studies have shown that art in the workplace increases productivity and creativity, and reduces stress. There are companies that specialize in selling corporate art that fits the space. What I do differently is I talk to the people who work in a company – get an idea of what the business stands for, what the owners and employees would like to see – and I create original pieces for that place. Art that inspires the people who work at and visit the business. Viewers usually say my work has presence. It activates a space with positive energy." --Maggie Parr
