Maureen Mace



Maureen Mace lives in Cambridge where she spends her time painting and teaching art to small groups in her studio.

Cambridge is a huge influence in her work. She loves the beautiful, historic city with its wide, open spaces, great
architectural buildings, old university traditions and, of course, its cows. Maureen adds into her works the rich night skies, shining moons, and her taste for Medieval Art to form the basis for these intricate, dream-like paintings.

Maureen studied visual communication and worked for several years as a graphic artist and illustrator before
qualifying rather late in life as an art teacher. Her early professional background still influences her work and she gets carried away with intricate detail using brushes that are far too small to delve into her whimsical, almost
magical-realist world.

Recently Maureen became a reader at the Parker Library at Corpus Christi where she draws from the illuminated
manuscripts. She is hoping to publish some kind of illustrated book based on her research in the future. She is a member of Cambridge Open Studios and Cambridge Drawing Society and exhibits with them regularly.
