Welcome and thank you for visiting Maureen Engle's website. She is known for her contemporary and abstract work. Color, emotion and energy are central to her work. She paints with brush and palette knife and enjoys experimentation. Trees are one of her favorite subjects, especially birch and southern pine. She paints in oil, acrylic and watercolor and collage and mixed media are sometimes incorporated into her pieces. Please check out her new 'In Situ Paintings' page of primarily commercial installations.
A native New Englander, Maureen spent a year in Provence, France after graduating from the University of Virginia. There, in love with the region, the culture and quality of life, she began to experiment with a loose and fresh approach to painting. To her, the joy of creating a painting is to capture the essence of the subject with energy and emotion.
Maureen was the artist chosen to do two large commissioned pieces representing the natural beauty in the vicinity of the new WellStar East Cobb Health Park: a painting of Sope Creek and one of Chattahoochee River Birches. Other clients include HGTV, Secretary and Mrs. Tom Price's 2012 Holiday Card, Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta and the Horseshoe Bend Country Club in Roswell as well as other corporate clients.
Maureen is represented by Frameworks Gallery in Marietta, Web Marsteller in Atlanta, Wild Oats and Billy Goats in Decatur and Roswell and Sunshine Gallery in Watkinsville (Athens area). Maureen has been in juried exhibits including Quinlan Art Center, Trinity School's Spotlight on Art, Cobb Museum's Metro Montage and the Atlanta Portrait Society as well as a guest artist at dk Gallery in Marietta.
A painting instructor at Spruill Art Center and Alpharetta Art Center, Maureen also conducts workshops and offers private instruction. She teaches oil and acrylic with palette knife and brush, watercolor, drawing and mixed media. See 'Classes and Workshop' tab above.
If you'd like to purchase a painting, Maureen is happy to direct you to the appropriate gallery, design center or to her own studio. She does commissioned pieces from small to very large in oil, acrylic, watercolor or mixed media- representational to pure abstract. If you see a painting you like and it has sold (*), she will be happy to create a piece for you with the understanding that it will be an original.
