Mill Road Art: 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 bikes and cows. Maureen adds 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. 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, magical-realist world.

An avid urban sketcher, Maureen can often be seen drawing on the streets of Cambridge. She is a member of Cambridge Open Studios and Cambridge Drawing Society and is a regular artist at Byard Art on King’s Parade.
