Maura Allen has been photographing the American West for more than two decades. She shows and sells her work as both a fine art photographer and mixed media artist.

Maura grew up in Northern California and earned her BA in Latin/Classical Studies at Stanford University, studying how iconic figures, myth and moments define a culture. When she began photographing the American West with ranchers and wranglers as her trusted guides, she realized the same cultural forces were at play. Today, Maura lives in the Williamson Valley (AZ).

Maura has been featured in Western Art & Architecture, Cowboys & Indians Magazine, SouthwestArt Magazine, Western Art Collector and frequently speaks about chronicling the West. Found in private, public and museum collections nationwide, her mixed media work is shown in  galleries nationwide.
