BIO

Maureen Riesco is a contemporary realism oil painter, specializing in paintings for animal and nature lovers. Her work features engaging and cheerful colors and has often been described as happy and whimsical. She is presently focused on painting animals of all types; however, her portfolio is very diverse, since she enjoys painting almost any subject.

Maureen is currently a full-time artist, though until recently she divided her time between her art endeavors and an engineering career.  She has been an artist from a very young age and is primarily self-taught, but she has also received private and academic art instruction in both painting and drawing.

Maureen's artwork hangs in private homes around the country and in several Boulder and Denver public buildings. She has received many awards and has been represented by several Colorado art galleries.

She is a member of the Louisville Art Association (LAA) and the North Boulder (NoBo) Arts District.
