Edith Maskey is a native San Antonian and has loved art for as long as she can remember. “Painting is the finest form of expression I know, and it is my personal statement about things around me. Hopefully, my paintings have conveyed my emotions. I feel it is the most sincere means of communication.” Her work is characterized by a love of color and exuberance of expression.
Although her subject matter is highly varied, Mexico, Texana, and people bare a special preference. Five years of study with Warren Hunter of San Antonio, and subsequent workshops with some of the finest artists in the country have brought this artist closer to her goal of being as good as artist as she can be.
Edith Maskey’s work has been well received in many prestigious exhibits. Her work has been the subject of feature articles in Southwest Art, Art Voices, American Artist and Texas Magazine.
She and her husband, John, live in their studio/home I the Hill Country just outside of Comfort, Texas.
Native Texan John Maskey paints what he knows and loves best-the colorful history, romance and flavor of Texas, Mexico and the Southwest. His bold use of light and color weaves a vibrant tapestry of the life and culture of the region.
Maskey received his first training at the Hunter School of Art where he studied for three years under distinguished San Antonio artist and teacher Warren Hunter. He subsequently studied with many nationally prominent artists including Millard Sheets, John Pike, Robert E. Wood, Zolton Szabo, Charles Reid and Edgar Whitney.
“The unique character of the land and people of the Southwest is rooted in powerful traditions. The blending of cultures, rugged landscape and classically simple architecture are timeless. I hope to capture some of this feeling in my paintings.”
Maskey’s work has been subject of feature articles in Southwest Art, Art Voices, American Artist, and other publications. His work is exhibited in numerous juried and invitational shows.
