Maxine Gadd was born Maxine Saunders, in the country
of Worcestershire, England, October 14th 1962.
A shy child, she much preferred drawing than to playing with
friends, getting through more pencils, paints and paper than
could be afforded !
In 1967 her family decided to emigrate to Australia, seeking
a much more rewarding lifestyle.
Maxine's art was first exhibited at school and then at community
art shows, where her early abilities won recognition through
winning both first and second awards. She began selling her work
at the age of 12.
She later achieved a Diploma in Graphic Design, also winning
the prestigious John Lunghi award for Outstanding Artistic Design.
Although Maxine paints many subjects, it is the Fairies and
Mermaids that people most want to see. Often they say, 'That's
what a real fairy looks like!'
