Maureen received her BFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1976 and went on to work as a filmmaker and writer/director, eventually making her way back to her first love: documentary and fine art photography. Living in the Colorado Rocky Mountain region for the last 30 years has given Maureen an ever growing fondness for the natural world. “Evanescence” arises from this appreciation in spite of (or perhaps because of) the devastation that climate change has brought to our world.  As an artist living and working in these trying times, she consciously seeks to portray beauty for its own sake… and maybe save the world too.
