I love Maggie Taylor along with her equally amazing husband, the photographer Jerry Uelsmann. Seeing her work early on in my digital imaging experience really changed my expectations as to what can be created digital from scratch (and pushed me to further explore what could be captured from a scanner, since most of her images and objects are scanned).
John Nack from the Adobe Lightroom podcast did a wonderful interview with her and Jerry. It can still be found online, if you have a chance I would recommend listening to it. Podcast #26 http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/lightroom/podcasts/
