About my work
Her happy place as a young girl was sitting on a rock by the water’s edge.
Since her teenage years, Maureen has escaped to the outdoors to pursue water or snow activities. Outside, is where she always feels an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility.
Out of necessity, after lingering post-concussion symptoms sidelined her career, Maureen found alternate ways to heal. Glass found her. It is a quiet activity that brings Maureen immense joy and that she can tolerate and manage depending on fluctuating stamina.
As Maureen evolves as an artist, she is drawn to observe how water, sky and glass share similar qualities. In glass she is attracted to tints of blues and soft greens that emulate the colour of water. She often incorporates driftwood or other elements found in nature in her pieces. believes that having art in the world and in your home adds beauty to everyday living. She thoroughly believes that art should not be seen as too precious to use everyday. Life should be celebrated and art is the perfect way to do it.
