Since taking an EARAC course at the then NE Essex School of Art(1988-90) Maxine has concentrated on and utilised the medium of printmaking to recreate the natural world and inanimate objects around us, observing the detail and patterns, simplifying and enlarging on the intricacies involved in anything, from frogs to lilies, from boats to mill wheels. At the same time she helped set up and establish Cuckoo Farm Artists Studios and Print workshop in Colchester.
Maxine compulsively collects information, to draw and recreate, with lino cuts for strong images, or dry points and collographs for finer details. She employs a depth of colour and patterns in her works to catch the attention and " tell the story " as she sees it.
She has had two solo exhibitions in the Colchester Digby gallery and has twice had work selected for the Society of Wild life Artists in the Mall galleries and the Eastern Arts Open in Kings Lynn.
