Maxine Gadd was born Maxine Saunders, and originally hails from Worcestershire in England but emigrated to Australia with her family in 1967. Maxine’s artistic ability began to emerge at age three, and was first exhibited at school and then at community art shows, where her early abilities won recognition through winning both first and second awards. She began selling her work at the age of 12. Being a non-conformist, Maxine chose to leave school when she reached 15, and eventually went to technical college to study Graphic Design. However, feeling her work was becoming too contrived and lacked excitement, Maxine left after one year to focus more on her own private world of art. Ever a restless soul, Maxine decided to give college another go and achieved a Diploma in Graphic Design, also winning the coveted and prestigious ‘John Lunghi Award for Outstanding Artistic Design’. While at college she met her future husband Will, whose support and encouragement has allowed Maxine to now concentrate full time on her Faerie art.
