Maxine Schreiber received her B.A. degree in Fine Arts in New Jersey in 1969. She taught oil painting and exhibited her work in the 70s and early 80s in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was a juried member of the Cambridge Art Association. After receiving a Masters's Degree in Expressive Therapies, she put painting aside to practice as a psychotherapist for over 20 years.
In 2001 she began painting again, and the following year was accepted as a juried artist member of Women In The Visual Arts, Inc. (WITVA). In 2005 she closed her private practice to devote herself to her artistic endeavors, and in 2014 she was accepted as a member of the National Association of Women Artists, Inc. (NAWA). In 2008 she joined the Artists of Palm Beach County and served on the Board of Directors until 2019, when she became the Art on Park Gallery Co-Manager. She is currently the Marketing/Exhibitions Manager for APBC. Her rich landscapes have been exhibited in countless juried shows and solo exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout south Florida, including the Armory Art Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter, the Cornell Museum, and Palm Beach County Art in Public Places at Palm Beach International Airport.
Maxine sees beauty everywhere and loves to recreate what she sees by painting landscapes. The lush flora of Florida particularly inspires her, but she also enjoys illustrating her travels to other places. Her goal is to express what she feels in a particular place at the moment in time. Many experiences have motivated her to paint “collage style” works, which depict several images of the same place on a single canvas. Her intention is to use art to lift spirits and inspire dreams. Though oil on canvas is her primary medium, she also enjoys watercolor, collage, and photography.
