Maureen is known for her contemporary and abstract work. Color, emotion and energy are central to her work. She paints with brush and palette knife and enjoys experimentation. Trees are one of her favorite subjects, especially birch and southern pine. She paints in oil, acrylic and watercolor and collage and mixed media are sometimes incorporated into her pieces. Please check out her new ‘In Situ Paintings’ page of primarily commercial installations.
A native New Englander, Maureen spent a year in Provence, France after graduating from the University of Virginia. There, in love with the region, the culture and quality of life, she began to experiment with a loose and fresh approach to painting. To her, the joy of creating a painting is to capture the essence of the subject with energy and emotion.
