Maureen Fitzharris Walter
MAUREEN FITZHARRIS WALTER was born and raised in Chicago, but calls Bel Aire, Kansas home. She is a 30 year partner in Gallery XII, and one of the founders of Artists At Old Town, where she teaches and maintains her studio. She is a member of the Artists Guild of Wichita, and past memberships in the Pastel Society of Kansas, Wichita Women Artists, Women in Arts, and Midwest Artists Organization gave her an opportunity to exhibit throughout the state of Kansas.
Maureen works in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel. She loves to draw, and is familiar with all of the drawing mediums.
Walter has studied at Wichita State University, the Wichita Center for the Arts, the Chicago Art Institute, DePaul University, and the Harrington Institute of Design.
She enjoys working in series in order to explore various avenues as fully as possible, often changing mediums to explore the many possibilities of that particular series.
Walter completed an Artist-in Residence stay at the International School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture in the Umbria region of Italy before touring most of Italy. She recently spent three weeks painting on site at the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland. Her work can be found in both private and corporate collections in the United States and Europe.
