Maxine Price

Maxine Graham Price grew up in a military family and moved with them to many postings in the southern and eastern climes of the United States as well as Germany. Being a shy child and finding it difficult to make new friends easily, Price found the one constant in her life, other than family, to be her ability to draw and paint.

 

Price received her BFA degree in Art from the University of Texas at Austin and over her career has pursued various aspects of art including being a book designer, a fashion illustrator, an interior designer, a graphic artist, a portrait artist and a painter showing in numerous galleries and juried shows in the Southwestern United States. Many of her portraits hang on the campuses of The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, and St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio. Her original oil paintings are in numerous corporate and private collections throughout the United States, Mexico, England, Germany, Japan and Bermuda.

 

While still doing an occasional portrait, Price decided in 1992 to make creative painting a full time pursuit and began a journey of experimentation and exploration, working with various mediums including watercolor, acrylics and liquid inks. Several years ago, during a visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, she began noticing abstract patterns in the ancient walls and began a series of abstract paintings, in oils with palette knife, inspired by the colors and textures of old San Miguel. Thus began a love affair with oils, the palette knife and abstraction that continues today.
