Maxine Brown was born in Queenstown in 1970. She is a self-taught artist residing in Queenstown.
The principal theme of Maxine’s work is her beloved home of Queenstown and the surrounding areas of the rugged and beautiful West Coast of lutruwita/Tasmania.
In the earlier years of Maxine's career as an artist, she predominately worked with watercolour. In recent years she has transitioned to the medium of acrylic, often producing large bold works showcasing the landscape of the West Coast.
Over the years Maxine has enjoyed sharing her knowledge through adult workshops and teaching at schools. A highlight was spending three weeks in China teaching art at a college in Fujian. Maxine’s work has been published in her book Tasmanian Watercolour. She has participated in various exhibitions both solo and individual in Tasmania and China and was chosen as a finalist in the prestigious Glover Prize 2019.
Maxine feels privileged and blessed to be able to express and share the beauty of the rugged West Coast of lutruwita/Tasmania through her artwork.
