One of her first pieces was prominently displayed for several weeks during an exhibit at the Jefferson Center. She recently won an award from a juried panel for her painting “Dancer”, which was displayed for several weeks in the art exhibit at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. Maureen also had an additional piece, entitled “Sambura” that was featured in the “Life is Beautiful: Unexpected Moments Captured in Art” exhibit, which displayed at the VTC School of Medicine. Maureen has sold several of her pieces and has developed a following among art appreciators locally and in other regions.
