For Maybellene, art and poetry have always gone hand in hand. Her art pieces are typically inspired by her poetry and vice versa. Her preferred mediums are painting, collage, oil pastel, and photography. She also enjoys experimenting with mixed media. What she creates is representative of herself, her dreams and the world around her. Maybellene enjoys attending both private and community workshops because she believes variety leads to the growth of creativity. Her work can be found in Poetry South, The Olive Tree Review, The White Fish Review and Section 8 Magazine.
