Maxine Pritchard “Best in Show”
“Sorcha” – acrylic on canvas by Maxine Pritchard
Maxine Pritchard, co-ordinator of the PAS Saturday Life Drawing group and Peninsula Arts tutor for the UPSTART for Kids program in 2022, has taken out the ‘Best in Show’ prize at the Sorrento Art Show with her work “Sorcha”.
Maxine studied painting and print making at Glasgow college of Building and Printing. In subsequent years she exhibited in various group shows both in Scotland and SE England. After working in Business Development in the publishing industry in London and teaching at Oxford Summer School for a number of years, she moved to the Mornington Peninsula in 2010.
Maxine rediscovered painting, drawing and print making in around 2015, focusing mainly on the landscape and people of her adopted home. Recently she was a finalist in the SBS Portrait and Landscape awards and received a highly commended in the Peninsula Green Wedge competition.
She presented her first Australian solo show September 2020 at the Cook Street Collective.
