(b 1963United Kingdom. Lives and works in Margate)
Maxine's work is a meeting point between formative creative experiences with textiles in her childhood, and her formal art education in Painting. A personal response to materials; such as cloth paper, ink, thread and yarn provide starting points.
"Materials resist and yield, and I move back and forth between them. In a sense this mirrors the continuous pull between my ‘natural’ human making impulses, and the limitations of a taught ‘fine art’ knowledge."
