Born in Ashton-under-Lyne, Maurice has lived for most of his life in the Greater Manchester area. In the early nineties he studied art and design at Tameside College in Ashton, before going on to study painting at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he graduated with a Fine Art degree in 1995.

In 1997 Maurice began studying teaching at the Didsbury campus of M.M.U where the following year he qualified as a teacher with a Post-Graduate Certificate of Education in Art and Design.

Although teaching became his number one priority for a number of years, he continued to paint in his spare time. In 2011 he took the decision to apply himself fully to painting, thereby achieving a lifelong ambition.

Maurice has had exhibitions of his work in Kent, Liverpool and Manchester. His work is currently on display at the Vernon Mill Galleries in Stockport, and this is also where he has his studio.
