Maureen Greenwood`s Art Gallery
A collection of contemporary and innovative art
Maureen Greenwood was born and educated in Dublin. She came to London in the early sixties and has lived in Stanmore, Middlesex since then.
From early childhood she has been interested in painting and in 1988 she gave up her full time job to devote her time to art.
Although she has attended art courses at various colleges, including The Camden School of Art, Stanmore College, Hendon College and The Harrow Arts Centre, she is fundamentally a self-taught artist.
She had her first public exhibition at the Stanmore Library in 1991 where her exhibits covered a broad spectrum of subjects in which she has used a variety of painting media.
Maureen's vibrant interpretation of semi-abstract landscapes, seascapes and skies shows her great love of colour. She also enjoys working in mixed media using different textures and collage, adding colour to create exciting effects and is always on the lookout for new ideas.
Her other interests include photography and gardening, both hobbies assist in formulating her ideas for new paintings.
She has travelled extensively in Europe where she derives inspiration for further paintings. She has been successful in selling her work in many places, including France, Italy, Ireland and South Africa.
Her work is exhibited at The Art at Five Gallery in Brighton and on `on-line` galleries.
