In her drawings and paintings, Maud Taber-Thomas strives to capture the vibrant light and color of far-off places and distant time periods. She draws inspiration from classic literature, especially that of the Romantic and Victorian Eras, and also from her European travels. Her paintings range from miniatures to larger than life portraits. Many of her works feature sensitive and evocative portraits.
Educated at the New York Academy of Art, Bowdoin College, and Oxford University, Taber-Thomas now lives in Silver Spring, Maryland and teaches at the Yellow Barn Studio at Glen Echo Park. She was the recipient of a Portrait Scholarship at the New York Academy of Art, a residency from the Terra Foundation in Giverny, France in 2011 and a Summer Research Fellowship to study the Pre-Raphaelites at Bowdoin College. She has shown her art in numerous shows at galleries in New York, the Washington, DC area, and Basel, Switzerland. She takes commissions for portraits in charcoal and oil.
