Maureen O'Brien

Maureen O’Brien lives in the woods and loves the woods. It is her desire to share with others the peacefulness, the majesty and the comedy of the inhabitants of the northwoods. Her love of painting has given her forty years of acrylic painting experience. She says, ‘Painting feeds a part of me that nothing else can. It is nourishing beyond any material things.’ A patiently expert teacher, Maureen offers classes locally, often from the charm of her farm near Solway.

Bring the Northwoods of Minnesota into your own home or business with a wall or corner of distinction. Maureen paints murals so realistic you feel you are in the woods. Listen for the chickadees, but you won’t hear mosquitoes.

Maureen’s depth perception of the forest allows you to see for hundreds of yards, right in your living room or den. Experience the peace and serenity your spirit craves.

Maureen’s love of children really shines when she paints murals with them. With her characteristically gentle spirit, Maureen patiently helps children create murals in their own environment. She teaches techniques that ensure success. Children experience the painting process under expert direction. Contact her for special school projects.
