Maureen McCarron

Artist Statement

    After almost 20 years of working on my AIDS Angels series, I took a break from painting to write a novel. I actually wrote two and finished the second one in time for the 2016 elections. Upset by the results, I found my way back to the brush and began these bird portraits. While not as intense as the AIDS Angels, they are still observant guardians and messengers that are equally compelling and filled with character.
