Maribeth is recognized for her vivid watercolor and mixed media paintings. Her work was influenced by contemporary artist George James, known for his paintings on YUPO, as well as Maters Artists, Georgia O'Keeffe and Joseph Raffael. McFaul's path to becoming a "fine artist" traveled down a road less travelled. Her dual interests in science and art led her to dual degrees in Cell Biology and Art Education.
Maribeth also works in pastel on the pavement performing as a street painter at various chalk festivals throughout the year. She is available to perform as a street painter at events or on commissions for permanent murals.
