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. Maureen paints with brush and palette knife and enjoys experimentation. Trees are one of her favorite subjects, especially birch and southern pine. 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, she began to experiment with a loose and fresh approach to painting. To her, the joy of painting is to capture the essence of the subject with energy and emotion. Examples of her paintings are below and in the attached galleries.
Maureen was the artist chosen to do two large scale paintings of familiar landscapes for the WellStar East Cobb Health Park. Other clients include HGTV (cotton series), Secretary and Mrs. Tom Price's 2012 Holiday Card (birch tress series), Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, PMRG 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 and Sunshine Gallery in Watkinsville, GA (Athens area). Maureen has been in juried exhibits including the 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.
