Maureen graduated with a degree in Costume Design & Theatre from the University of Minnesota with an early foray into studying the "art of beauty" at the Horst Institute (now known as the Aveda Institute).

After graduating, the plan was to be an illustrator but the opportunity came to work in a photo studio and it was a perfect fit. Having been a freelance prop/set stylist for over twenty years and working in nearly every area of styling, she enjoys working with fabric, conceptual design, home/interiors, beauty and food.

Maureen is based out of Minneapolis, where she lives with her husband and four crazy dogs.
