Maxine Newell

Maxine Doreen Newell, was born at Brentwood, Essex in 1966, daughter of Arthur T. Newell and his wife Sylvia A. née Bloom, who married at Bethnal Green, London in 1961. Maxine was educated at Nicholas Comprehensive School, Basildon, Essex 19771982, Art & Design at South Essex College, Basildon Campus, Essex 20042006, and at Essex University, Southend-on-Sea 2011-2014, graduating BA (hons) in Fine Art. Maxine currently works in Signalling Design for London Underground. Her watercolour drawings can begin as a rough sketch from life or as a photograph to translate a captured moment from life to paper. She uses a limited watercolour palate so as not to complicate her technique, it is the simplicity of the outcome that is important with her love for Felixstowe and the surrounding areas of Suffolk to provide her inspiration. Maxine has set up her own studio gallery 'Art e Max' in Sea Road, Felixstowe, minutes from the promenade and the sea which enables her to continue to develop her practice. She exhibits her watercolour drawings at 'Suffolk Living', Orwell Road, and at 'Art on the Prom' both in Felixstowe.
