Fine Art Expressions
Maureen Marie Sundstrom, Artist
Visual Arts Provide A Great Source Of Joy In
My Life. The Use Of Bold, Bright and Vivid Colour Is What makes My Work
Memorable and Visually Exciting. My preferred medium is acrylic paint. Early on my work had a Folk Art influence, which is now evolving into a new style
incorporating textured canvas and a finer hand.
Over the past 15 years, my
life has undergone adventurous transformation. Once a business woman living in
the city, I made a choice to move to a quieter life in the Northwoods of
Wisconsin where I resided for many years. Later, a ranch in the mountains of Washington
would become my home. I have come full circle, recently moving back to the city
where I was raised. Over the years I have studied art and worked at teaching
myself new techniques. It felt good allowing a long dormant talent to come back
to life. Creating provides me with a wonderful energy. Whether I am out in the
garden sketching, sitting with a paintbrush in my hand in front of an easel, or
on the road with my camera capturing beautiful photos, I am always looking for
special ways to share what I see. The peace that I feel when out taking photos,
drawing or painting provides me with inspiration. I take that inspiration and
use it to create art portraying the beauty I see.
My photography, art, writing and graphic design work have appeared in national publications such as; "Arts & Crafts Homes and The Revival Magazine", "Style 1900 Magazine", "American Bungalow Magazine", "Wisconsin Trails Magazine", "Cottages and Bungalows Magazine", local news publications, Chamber Books, Tourism Guides, book Illustrations, book covers and more.
