Artist: Maureen Chapman



Currently residing in Lake Toxaway, NC, I began my journey as an artist in Brevard, NC.  My home, being surrounded by the wild inspired my ambition to capture nature and the animals that visited my backyard. I first experimented with watercolors and other mediums such as clay but then discovered a love for acrylic and oil painting.  My passion for nature and art continued to grow over the years, leading me to seek tutelage from well-known artists such as Ann DerGara.  I’ve since matured as an artist and have developed my own style.  Every time I paint my goal is to express nature; capturing its beauty and animating spirit through colors, shapes and textures.
