Maureen graduated with a BFA in Media Arts from SVA in 1986. Upon graduation she went on to study at the Summer Master's Program at Long Island University in Southampton with Eric Fischl and April Gornik. Maureen's work has been exhibited at The East End Council for the Arts, The Society for Illustrators, Church Street School for Music and Art, and Lutece in New York City. Her illustrations have been published in numerous magazines including Ms. Magazine, Self, Corporate Finance, Free Spirit, and Reflex. Over the years, Maureen has worked with Grove Atlantic, St. Martin's Press, and Viking Penguin, and her artwork has graced the book covers of many writers including Kurt Vonnegut. In her latest project, Maureen created and exuberant 9x20 foot mural in the children's reading area at the Open Door Family Medical Center in Port Chester, NY to help stimulate interest in reading and health issues.
For 6 weeks the students will "Imitate Art" by taking master artists work and reproducing it with their own hands. By reproducing master work the children absorb the wisdom of the master's palette, design aesthetics, composition and technique. Without awareness, their brains register the information while their hands are being trained in it.
This produces great confidence building and strengthens their concentration skills.
