Maud Simmons is a native of New York and attended the Rhode Island School of Design, where she graduated with a BFA in painting. Her work runs the gamut from large to small, heroic to intimate, with every medium represented in a long career of constant change and experiment. The shoe paintings are a series in her latest homage to the 'ordinary'. “My purpose is to find beauty where it is hidden...in the closet or the kitchen drawer. Any good painter can create a lovely landscape, but what about the shoes you wear every day? They deserve recognition and applause.”
