Maureen Tepedino - The Artist
Being an Artist, and having the opportunity to create beautiful unique paintings for my clients, family and friends to enjoy is the biggest gift. I constantly reflect on the happiness it brings me, not to mention the satisfaction and love I get from my clients who will constantly ask me
“How did you know exactly what each area of my home or office needed? I love the feeling I get when I sit and look at your paintings and many times, I can feel the love and passion you put into each one which always brings me joy and happiness.” When one of my clients selected ‘Crashing Ocean Waves’ from my website for her dining area, she told me she loved the painting and wanted to ‘have a piece of me’ in her home. I was so touched and again felt a wave of gratitude and appreciation. She made the right choice as it was definitely the perfect piece for the space. Painting for me is the most satisfying, rewarding career as I love creating the perfect pieces for my clients to enjoy. I never think of painting as a job, as I consider it a gift to be able to do what I love and make my clients happy at the same time. I especially love their reaction and the satisfaction they express when my art brings all of the elements in their spaces together and it’s pure joy. I also love when then ask me, “How did you get to capture my essence and to give me the feeling I needed my art to portray?” Again, I feel that being able to know and understand what each client needs is an innate gift, and I am grateful to be blessed with that gift.
As a former musician, Maureen's artwork is inspired by contemporary jazz, reggae, classical music and the blues.

Her work brings a new flavor and accent that transforms and is described as eclectic and transcultural. Her paintings are sold nationally by Interior Designers, Art Consultants, Architects and Contractors for Residential and Corporate projects. She also leases and specializes in Corporate Art by creating original pieces designed for Commercial spaces.
