ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Maureen was born and raised in Minnesota.  A brief visit to Colorado sold her on attending college there to pursue a career in sales & marketing.  She stayed and never looked back.  Working and traveling a lot in that discipline opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to be creatively involved in art.  After a lengthy career in sales & marketing, she retired and bought her first DSLR and began making images of the American west.

 Today, most of her time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.  Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local and nationally juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, and  images selected by National Geographic for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers and she is currently working on releasing 2 books that will document the beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Maureen is an emerging talent whose methods and techniques are largely self-taught.  Maureen’s inspiration is derived mostly from her environment.  She explores the work of peers and connects on social media mainly to further explore processing techniques and stay on top of new developments in software and camera technology.  Some of her work is strictly an in-camera capture.  Some of it involves taking the file from the camera and into the computer to develop composites or several interpretations of the same scene.  This helps to keep her eyes open to the many possibilities for how our world can be observed and interpreted.
