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.
Maxine began painting over 36 years ago.
A lifelong love of art and of painting, she began painting commissions of horses, animals and then some years later, people.
She paints in acrylics and in oils, working closely with the specific requirements, ideas and visions of her clients.
Although self taught, she submitted and exhibited successfully with the Society of Equestrian Artists for a number of years and was recognised as an associate member, winning prizes for her acrylic works.
She then exhibited at various exhibitions and shows around the UK and at the Mall galleries, Dover street, Covent Garden and also with the Royal Society of Miniature Painters
A number of works are now published as limited edition prints and greetings cards.
Now, based in beautiful South Devon, she is working again full time in painting, constantly exploring new ideas and she is now enjoying bringing 'long-thought-about' ideas and inspirations to reality!
