I enjoy the artistic process enormously and work all day, every day.
My work has been included in various exhibitions, including the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition here in London as well as shows in Canada and Europe.

jerry waese says:
"Maureen's work has the special something which for the purpose of this testimonial I will call the "X" factor, because it gets to the crux of characterization, as well as design. In a sense, she has a gift of sharing what amounts to X-ray vision into the subject, and into art itself.
This is not something anyone gets for free, so while gifted with that special something "X", there is no question that Maureen has devoted a great energy into finding what others do not find, something that ties together the work of the "masters" to the work of her "Peers" and to the essence of her own work.
For Maureen's X-ray magic to occur, any marking method will do, from chopsticks to oil, crayon, to stone, I would be surprised if she did not make art out of staples and leather if they were at hand.
We are lucky that we do not need to wear lead garments in the face of Maureen's high powered ouvre, the X-Radiation is figurative, you will not suffer in the least by viewing her work, which usually is figurative in the sense that she can introduce you to the human form as easily as to a teapot, and once introduced, (by virtue of her x-ray eyes) you feel like you actually know the person she has paused to draw or paint.
And here I pause, and I recommend that you also pause, and spend more time with as many of her pieces as possible, because it will touch something inside of you, something ephemeral, potentially contagious, something that we might call 'X'."

"It is always easy to favourite Maureen's portrait drawings.They leap dramatically from the page,with lively lines and something tangible about the sitter,captured, as if by magic."
