Maxine Wain

Artistic expression has been an important aspect of her life.  She is mostly self-taught in all her art endeavours however has attended relevant workshops and short courses from time to time.

She has worked in ceramics creating, glazing and firing functional and sculptural pieces in her studio.  Several years later she explored textiles and created framed works and fashion pieces.  Other art endeavours have been paper collage and sculptural shapes which she exhibits as framed 2D works. They have simplicity of shape and are often whimsical. 

Oil and acrylic painting began in 2011 when she retired from her career as a librarian and rented a studio. Her inspiration is drawn from the landscapes she experienced while travelling in many parts of outback Australia.

In 2017 she attended a limestone workshop and has since created a variety of forms in limestone.

She built a studio at her property on the Mornington Peninsula in 2020 where she currently works painting in oil and acrylic and sculpting in limestone.  Here her paintings are inspired by the native Moonah trees.

She mostly exhibits at The Victorian Artist’s Society where she has won awards for her sculptures and for several years has been invited to exhibit her work in The Artist of the Year.
