Mae Towers was born and raised in the small town of Fort Fairfield in northern Maine. During her last year in a private high school she worked with fine artist Elizabeth Punches. She has found her own way as an artist while working at a wide variety of jobs, from picking potatoes to cooking to working with Alzheimer’s patients. In 2013 she created a series called “Louie the Neurotic Dog,” which has raised over $1,300 for animal rescue organizations. Her love of animals is apparent in her current work.
