Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery.
I hope you will enjoy viewing my work. Please feel free to contact me with any comments you may have about it.
All the artworks are available for sale (unless it says the work has been sold in the description).
If you wish to purchase my work, please visit my website or email me from the links at the top of the page
All of my art work is dispatched unmounted and unframed

Limited edition prints of my work are available. Please visit my shop at etsy.

My artwork is inspired by realistic subjects which I then abstract or stylise. I particularly enjoy using buildings and plants. I may use photos or my drawings-often computer drawn ones- as a basis, but will then change the colours and add details from imagination or memory, or simply just use the latter to construct a picture. I love taking a quick glance at a scene and simplifying what is in reality very complicated, often by placing a mental "frame" around it -a skill etched on my memory from City and Guilds Embroidery courses. I also enjoy making fantasy artwork, again from my imagination or what is my idea of characters from myth, legend and stories.

I work mainly in watercolour-paint and pencil, felt and gel pens, coloured pencils, inks. I sometimes add texture in the form of a magazine cutting, or other papers or threads/fabric etc. My cats enjoy my art and will help by drinking excess paint flavoured water, sitting on a painting to keep it warm, and grabbing my hand or brush to just make a mark where they see fit. I don't think anyone buying my work would want a subtle cat-hair texture however, so I carefully remove this before offering it for sale!

I would like people to enjoy my art in the sense of seeing a different way of viewing things, and experiencing hopefully the atmosphere and mood that I'm trying to convey.

What an interesting and talented artist Maeve is! Her paintings make you sit and really look to find so much in them.
Thanks Mel, for finding another great artist!

Hi Pat,
Actually I discovered her through John Wright- her husband, who was my very first feature as an upcoming contemporary artist. Before him, I was featuring mostly masters of painting and music as well as great Filipino painters. Thanks for your faithful patronage of this blog. Thanks also for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY. Am just making my presence felt, my friend.

Thanks for the insightful post. It is interestingly innovative. May I be so privileged to follow your every post? I have been dropping your EC. Hope you're in the best of health.
