Maeve Cook is a fine artist based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States. She was born in 1989 and raised in rural Japan, surrounded by people and cultures from many regions on the globe to be inspired. She has never been formally taught art after her graduation from middle school. She and her family moved to Fort Wayne, IN in 2015. After recieving numbers of encouragements over all those years, in 2018, Maeve finally decided to take her artwork as her professional career at 29 years of age.
Other than being an artist, Maeve used to be
an orchestral violinist and a linguist by profession.
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. She is also a seamstress, a latin dancer, occasional vocalist, and a Hallmark movie enthusiast. Her way of life is also greatly reflected in her artworks.
Maeve mainly works with oil, colour pencils and charcoal.
She loves to create especially portraits and sceneries. Her style is rather realistic and her artworks are inspired by history, antiques, fairy tales, music, and her own imagination.
