We will venture into seeing differently, understanding what’s important in your composition (this may surprise you), simplifying what’s there, understanding how critical color is to creating depth and drama.

Meet the Instructor:
Maureen Chatfield is a contemporary painter whose body of work is a unique blend of New York Abstract Expressionism and Bay Area Figurative painting. Her paintings are never premeditated; instead, she allows the color harmonies, receding and overlapping lines, and a delicate balance of amorphous shapes to emerge while she paints. Chatfield has studied at several institutions including the Art Students League, New York; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Fashion Institute of Technology, New York; and Hunter College, New York. She has studied with Jean Buckly, Ron Lent, Robert Saxton, and Stuart Shils. Maureen is represented by the Rosenberg Gallery, NYC and has been included in numerous exhibitions. Her work is in many private and corporate collections. Learn more here.
