Featured Artist: Maureen Stratton

Maureen Lacoste Stratton holds both an RN and Exercise Physiology degree and after a successful career as COO of a medical management business she started and ran, she was able to turn to her true desire; painting. She quickly evolved and noted that her passion lay primarily in landscape oils.

Maureen entered her first juried competition after painting for only 3 years in 2011, and took first place in the Landscape division . She has also won third place consecutively, in the 2012 juried spring and summer BAA shows also in the landscape division. Her work has received positive acclaim, and as an up and coming artist, she continues to strive to progress in her craft. Maureen's work tends toward realism, but with looser brushstrokes and tonal qualities.

Maureen currently belongs to the Burbank Art Association, the Fine Arts Federation, the Autry Museum and the Mountain Arts Network in Lake Arrowhead where she and her husband maintain a second home and she finds inspiration for her paintings. You can view her additional work.
