Maureen works out of her Evergreen Farm Studio, which is located just west of Bemidji, MN near Solway. Maureen has been painting most of her life and is, for the most part, a self-taught artist. Maureen is known for her nature, landscape, and wildlife paintings which usually have a strong northern Minnesota influence. Most of her work is inspired directly by nature itself, much of which surrounds her at Evergreen Farm Studio. Maureen has painted with acrylics on a number of mediums, including canvas, leather, and wood. A lot of her paintings for sale on this site, have been sublimated onto steel, making them durable and waterproof.
Maureen is also a respected art and painting teacher, with decades of experience working with students of all ages. Maureen especially loves to teach students the healing power of art and encourages everyone she meets to pick up a brush. Maureen is available for private tutoring, in-class demonstrations, artist-in-residencies, parties, events, and frequently offers group classes at her own Evergreen Farm Studio. Maureen teaches private lessons, both at her Evergreen Farm Studio and on location elsewhere. If you are interested in taking classes with Maureen or if you would like to hire her for a demonstration, please contact her here.
