"Painting is a source of endless pleasure, but also of great anguish."- Balthus
My name is Maureen Williams and I find great pleasure and excitement in creating visual art. I paint plein aire landscapes and still-life in oils. I also create ceramic art pieces and tiles.
I am enchanted by the natural world. Painting outdoors in nature is a spiritual experience for me. It is while engaged in this practice that I feel truly connected to this amazing and varied world we inhabit.
I draw vast amounts of inspiration and visual information from two places which I am fortunate to divide my time between- Martha's Vineyard and The Adirondack Mountains. Each location has exceptional natural beauty, both are pristine, yet extremely different in visual splendor.
