Commissions and ideas for paintings come from a variety of people and places. Inspiration comes from a love of the country, the coast and from many holidays spent in Devon, Cornwall and West Wales.
A lifelong love of art and of painting, Maxine began painting commissions of horses and dogs and then soon after, she was commissioned in portraiture.
Painting in acrylics and in oils, Maxine works closely with the specific requirements, ideas and visions of her clients.
She has exhibited successfully with various societies including the Society of Equestrian Artists for a number of years and was recognised as an associate member, winning prizes for her acrylic works.
She has exhibited over many years at various exhibitions and shows around the UK including the Mall Galleries, Dover street, Covent Garden and also with the Royal Society of Miniature Painters.
A number of works are published as limited edition prints and greetings cards.
Now permanently based in South Devon, she paints a variety of subjects alongside portrait commissions and enjoys exploring new ideas and inspiration from the beautiful South Devon coast and the country life of the West Country.
