Biography Maxine Abraham spent her early childhood on an Alberta farm and ranch where she enjoyed working with horses and cattle and riding to the one-room school on her favourite horse. She also had a keen interest in drawing at a very early age. During her adult years she undertook further studies in the field of art from The Alberta College or Art in Calgary, Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona and various painting workshops. Maxine’s Dutch heritage has brought forth several artists, including her father. The family also owns a beautiful oil painting of a young lady (unknown identity) done by her great uncle dated 1894. She now resides in Calgary as a professional artist. Her experiences in trail riding, hiking and cross country skiing and gardening has given her inspiration for many paintings. Her repertoire represents a large variety of mountain and prairie scenes and still life subjects. Her favourite subject is the cowboy and life on a typical ranch of the Canadian west. She belongs to the Kaleidoscope Artists Association and is a life member of the Calgary Sketch Club both of which have shows throughout the city. She has also displayed her work at the Calgary Stampede, Spruce Meadows. Bar-U Ranch, American Academy of Women Artists and the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Her works show in Canadian and American galleries, on covers of magazines and in private and corporate collections in Canada, USA and Europe.
