Maxine Brown

Maxine Brown is a self taught artist and stay at home mum, she is a third generation West Coaster residing in Queenstown.

The principal theme of Maxine’s work is her beloved home of Queenstown and the rugged and beautiful West Coast of Tasmania. Whilst watercolour is her preferred medium she also enjoys experimenting with different mediums such as acrylic, printmaking, pencil and pastel. Maxine’s style is constantly evolving, she considers learning, growing and having fun in the process important.

Over the years Maxine has enjoyed sharing her knowledge through adult workshops and teaching at schools. A highlight was spending three weeks in China teaching art at a college in Fujian. Her watercolour artwork has been published in her book Tasmanian Watercolour. She has participated in various exhibitions both solo and individual in Tasmania and China.

Maxine considers it a blessing and privilege to be able to express herself through her artwork.
