Maureen Tepedino - The Artist
Growing up in the Caribbean, Maureen Tepedino began expressing her innate artistic ability by drawing sketches of Jamaican sceneries and still life. Maureen's love of art and creativity started in her early childhood and was encouraged by her Parents who recognized her talents from a very young age. Maureen was exposed to and inspired by artist Jackson Pollock's and Vincent van Gogh's paintings whose work she truly identifies with.
Maureen is passionate about creating beautiful “Art that speaks to you” and evokes harmony which is achieved through unity and cohesion, giving a sense of completion to her work. In addition, the array of unique pieces tells a different story each time according to the recipient’s personal perspective. Maureen's creative artistry adds value and interest to spaces.
As a former musician, her artwork is inspired by contemporary jazz, reggae, classical music and the blues. Maureen currently invests her efforts in creating unusual, abstract designs using acrylic on canvas and mixed media at her Marina del Rey (Los Angeles) studio, which reflect the colors of the Caribbean's subtle hues contrasted with blazing colors. 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 specializes in corporate art by creating original pieces designed for Commercial spaces.
