  • Maeona L. Urban

    I am an artist yet I feel flattered to be considered an artist. I have not gone through the usual training methods to attain the title. My grandmother inspired my love of art and nature. I do plein air, realistic studio, and Northwest Coast Native American style artwork. I paint to comfort myself, to feel I have accomplished something worth sharing, to link with others and to see them connect to each other through the artwork. So by years of random trial and error, to satisfy either my own emotions or simply to please others, I paint.

    I've discovered life outside of medicine. Digital macro photography has allowed me to explore color, light and patterns in flowers. I find great solice and pleasure photographing in Southern Oregon. Sometimes I wish my mind would forget what my eyes have seen....but flowers I wish to remember.
