Maureen is inspired by nature, in particular land and seascapes, capturing the mood, light and atmosphere. She works in oil and often incorporate pastel into some of her work to give a textured dimension to the finished piece. Capturing moments from walks by the coast and countryside, catching the light on a wave or the glimmer of sunlight through the trees. She will make quick sketches and take photos, which she will then transfer on to board in her studio.
Maureen's passion is to create a piece of work that has sensory value to the viewer. She has exhibited in Ireland, Jersey and the Cotswolds. Featured in the Oxford Art book ‘ The City through the eyes of its artists’. Maureen is a regular participant in Oxfordshire Art weeks, and a member of Chipping Norton Arts. Visitors are welcome to visit her studio by appointment, to view her originals giclees limited edition prints and cards.
