Maureen has been painting or involved in graphics most of her working life. When made redundant in 2002 the decision was made to fulfil a lifetimes ambition, to study fine art.
Maureen completed her studies for a BA (Hons) in 2005 going that step further to study for an MA at UCE Birmingham, this was completed in 2007.

Maureen changed her work during this period from large paintings of the structures of flowers to abstract work called “either/or” which allowed the viewer to decide what the image meant to them.

Maureen's current work (2010) is emerging from an interest in the visual conflict produced between rural and incongruous industrial sites. Paintings are developed in response from photographs taken on site and these become impressions of the reality.
