About The Artist


Growing up in the Caribbean, Maureen Tepedino began expressing her innate artistic ability by drawing sketches of Jamaican sceneries and still life. Her love for Art and creativity started in her early childhood and was encouraged by her Parents who recognized her talents from a very young age. When they saw her first painting, a simple piece of a man exploring the woods, her Dad exclaimed to her Mom, "This little girl is talented!" and her passion was born. 

As she honed her skills, Maureen began drawing inspiration from artists like Jackson Pollock and Vincent van Gogh, whose work she truly identifies with.

In this Painting, Ocean at Dusk, Maureen felt inspired by Jackson Pollack. However, she added her own creativity and artistic abilities to express her unique vision through her Art. She has an expert eye for color as a Color Specialist, and this shows in all her Pieces.

As An Abstract Artist:

Maureen is passionate about creating beautiful Art that evokes emotion and “speaks to you” while infusing spaces with color, texture, and innovative design concepts. To Maureen, color is magical and can be used to increase or decrease the spaciousness of a room, change its mood or create a new environment.

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. She has sold her Artwork to Interior Designers, Art Consultants, Architects, and Contractors for residential and corporate projects.
