Below are Maureen’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.
Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota. A brief visit to Colorado sold her on attending college there to pursue a career in sales & marketing. She stayed and never looked back. Working and traveling a lot in that discipline opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries. She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west.
Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country.
She was listed by
LightSpaceTime.art as one of the top ten photographers to watch for in 2018. She was also selected for a month-long solo exhibition by LightSpaceTime.art for April 2019. At the end of 2019, Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announced their “Year in Review” recap. This annual feature reviews and promotes the gallery’s 12 top winning artists for the 12 individual monthly art exhibitions. In 2019, the gallery received more than 9,703+ entries for their art competitions and Maureen’s art was selected for what the gallery considered one of the best 13 entries from their themed exhibitions. Maureen was selected again for a 2-week, solo showcase by LightSpaceTime.art for March 2020.
Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.
I am an emerging talent whose methods and techniques are largely self-taught. Part of my time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way. I am deeply inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. Part of my work is also derived from my imagination. My greatest satisfaction comes from taking the file from the camera and into the computer to develop composites. The results reflect my personal feelings and beliefs, events, culture, etc., that are best expressed through artistic interpretations.
