Maureen Crone's Profile
I've spent half of my life either on an island or in Italy( and for a while, an island in Italy), so I guess those two locales are pretty evident inspirations in my jewelry design and painting. I've been trying to make a living in art for as long as I can remember. I'm just about there, but thankfully married a guy who doesn't mind sponsoring me while I practice my crafts.
Painting on canvas is new to me, and I am definitely a work in progress. My kids got me started painting-- I began on their faces, and eventually graduated to "wall art"-- that's what we call it at our house. Because it's ALL art, you know?
Most recently my life has been full of changes... after 13 years in Italy, the Crone family is making a home for ourselves in Portsmouth, Virginia. We have renovated the family homestead and added a clay studio-- so I am narrowing my focus a bit, but love every minute of it.
