Maureen Bradshaw

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, Ontario

Maureen Bradshaw is a Toronto based artist. Her work is primarily oil on canvas. She layers lively brush strokes over a loose sketch of the animal, painting with a spontaneous energy that allows surprises of bright background colours to peer through. With a lengthy career as a creative director in the graphics business in downtown Toronto, additional training in fashion illustration at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and a love for the outdoors, she explores the individual animal's personality in each painting.
