About the author
As a child, Maud spent summers by the sea on Fire Island and in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Her mother was an artist and took her to museums, gallery openings and artist’s studios. One of her earliest memories is sitting in front of a large painting by Monet of water lilies at the Museum of Modern Art and getting lost in the color and light. In her twenties she lived in the Southwest and painted the incredible vistas of sky with dusty pink-colored mountains and silver rivers running through the landscape. She accompanied her husband, an archaeologist, as he traveled through New Mexico and Arizona visiting ancient ruins. The light and colors of the sky and earth were brilliant and required color palettes very different than those used for the gardens, waters, and countryside of the Northeast. At present, Maud Guilfoyle has a studio near the Hudson River and teaches at The Art School at Old Church in Demarest, New Jersey. The quality of light in the Hudson Valley is soft, at times luminescent. Nature and the delicate balance of human interface with the environment are threaded throughout her art.
