Maggie Tello Case is a native of Riverside, California. She was taught to sew and embroider by her mother, Yolanda, who is a talented seamstress in her own right. When Maggie was very young, Yolanda gave her a box of buttons that had belonged to her mother. Maggie would spend hours playing with the buttons, re-organizing them by size, shape and color, and making jewelry and other things with them. Later, Maggie began including buttons in many of her art pieces as a signature calling card and even named her craft business, “Button, Button, Who!” for her love of buttons. Inspired by memories from her childhood, pop culture and a love of color, she creates imaginative pieces which demonstrate her sense of humor and whimsy. Maggie is very involved in the Riverside local arts community, having participated in group shows at Division 9 Gallery, the Riverside Art Museum, Norco College Art Gallery, Saturation Fest and the Riverside Arts Council’s Artscape exhibitions. Maggie placed at the Riverside Mariachi Festival Art Competition in 2013 and 2014.
