About

Website picAcclaimed local artist Maureen Beat has over 25 years of creative experience. Her artistic expressions take a unique perspective, combining her time spent as an agency art director and as a freelance graphic designer. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and worked in the corporate world prior to founding her own company in 1989, Art Expressions Ltd., which has left its creative touch on Omaha. She returned to the roots of her artistic expression – painting – crafting her own unique style inspired by the greats of the French Impressionist Era. Custom commissions turned into landmark opportunities when she was tapped to collaborate with New York-based glass artist, Peggy Karr for the Hometown Heritage Series. Sold exclusively at Borsheim’s, the 5 year collaboration featured nostalgic Nebraska landmarks such as the iconic Johnny Rosenblatt stadium, Peony Park and Aksarben. Steeped in history, the works featured watercolor art by Beat & fused-glass craftsmanship by Karr bringing to life memories from a bygone era. Contact Maureen at artx@cox.net for your next commission.
