Native San Antonian Edith Maskey has loved art for as long as she can remember. Among her childhood playmates were a box of crayons and a coloring book. Her formative years in San Antonio gave her an affinity for the rich culture and traditions of the Southwest. “Painting is the finest form of expression I know and my personal statement to the viewer. My goal is to share my depth of feeling for the people, the landscape and the architecture of a region filled with light and color.” Edith studied for five years at the Hunter School of Fine Art in San Antonio and later with nationally known painters Charles Reid, Millard Sheets, Ken Riley and Roy Andersen. Her work has been well received in many prestigious exhibits and she enjoys a large following
Nancy Moyer, Professor Emerita of Art at the University of Texas Pan American has eloquently described Edith’s work as having the feeling of “capturing a beautiful image that instantly touches the soul, but can only exist at that moment. She is extremely skillful in the mastery of the watercolor aesthetic.”
Edith’s work has been the subject of feature articles in Southwest Art, Art Voices, American Artist and Texas Magazine. She is represented in many important private and corporate collections as well as in prominent galleries. She and her husband John , also an artist, live in their studio-home in the Hill Country just outside of Comfort, Texas.
