Maura received a BA in Visual Arts with a concentration in Photography from Fordham College at Lincoln Center. She furthered her education at premier art schools including San Francisco Art Institute, California College of Art, and the School of Visual Arts. Maura’s work is autobiographical, focusing on her lifelong battle with mania – illuminating the struggles and celebrating the triumphs. She executes each work in the medium best suited to its theme and subject matter. Of late she has moved from shooting photographs to conceptualizing and art directing photographs in which she often appears as a subject.
