Maxine has painted private commissions for many years, specialising to start with in equine art, particularly in racing and polo.
She has exhibited her passion for detailed but characterful portraiture, at numerous exhibitions throughout the uk, predominantly at Christies of London, Dover street, the Mall Galleries and Covent Garden.
Maxine began painting in watercolour, is self taught and has been painting for over 35 years. She now paints in acrylics and some oils. Her favoured surface is gesso board or ceramic alumina for miniatures.
From large canvases to miniatures, they are equally a passion, both providing their own challenges.
She paints a variety of subjects but mostly whatever the idea and vision inspires her, whatever the subject, from people, animals, places to even a bag of spanners, can become a painting!
She undertakes private commissions of portraits of dogs, horses, family and a variety of subjects.
