Roswell artist Maureen Engle discusses her Abstract Art
Born in the Berkshires, Maureen Engle graduated from the University of Virginia and then spent a year in Provence, France. There, she furthered her studies in art and began to experiment with a loose and fresh approach to painting. Maureen moved to the Atlanta area in 1995 and has never left.
Maureen is passionate about color and its ability to convey energy and emotion and is well known for her contemporary and expressive work. Trees and nature scenes are one of her favorite subjects which she first studies and then paints from memory experimenting with various moods and colors. She works to continually abstract her subject, letting the painting tell her where it wants to go.
Maureen specializes in original artwork for residential and commercial spaces and has done numerous commissions for the lobbies of health centers, banks, offices, and country clubs. A full time artist in her Roswell studio and popular instructor, she has taught brush and palette knife painting for over 15 years at Atlanta area art schools.
