In her personal life, Maeve dresses in late 40's to 50's style clothing, lives in a century old house, and keeps journals with her fountain pen on her favourite antique desk.

Maeve mainly works with oil, colour pencils and charcoal. Majority of her work is inspired by people and past.

Her style is somewhat more traditional, detailed and realistic than modern and abstract. Her aim is NOT hyper realistic art, but to capture object emotionally realistic.
