Meet Maura Segal

Today we’d like to introduce you to Maura Segal.

Maura, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have a degree in graphic design from Cal State University, Northridge. After graduating, I went straight into working in women’s clothing design and then lighting design for the home. When I turned 40, I began to reflect on my life and to think about what I felt passionate about and what I’d like to spend the rest of my life doing, and decided to become a full-time artist.

With much support from my husband, I began to pursue my dream. 8 years later, in 2015, I received a commission to create 3 large artworks for the newly remodeled Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital in Los Angeles. From this project, I was able to get representation by a few galleries and currently, I’m represented by 7 art galleries within the US.

Has it been a smooth road?
No, it hasn’t been and it isn’t always easy, even now. When I sell one or two works, it boosts my energy to continue working long hours on new works. But when things quite down for a while, it’s challenging sometimes to stay focused and find the necessary discipline to put in the work.

In order to get through the “quiet times”, I give myself projects where I experiment with composition and colors.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I create abstract, multi-layered artworks from papers and acrylic paint. I am is deeply inspired by the Los Angeles landscape and lifestyle, from the sun-drenched plants to the bustling network of intertwining urban roads and intersections.

I feel a relationship between these coexisting elements reflected in the juxtaposition of dense, geometric paper forms and the free, expressive and rhythmic lines.
