Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Maxine grew up in the remote farming areas of the country’s heartland. This idyllic existence was cut short by the political turmoil that swept through her country. In her youth, Maxine studied with her sister, Lauren Bone, under the guidance of her father, the world renowned wildlife artist, Craig Bone. While continuing to nurture her inherited artistic gifts, Maxine showcases her love of wild animals in their natural environments in her paintings.

Maxine’s remarkable paintings also bare whiteness to her endless love for traveling. While regularly visiting different parts of the world, she constantly photographs more cultures and wildlife for reference. Today, Maxine resides with her husband in North Carolina.
