Maureen’s creative practice spans embroidery, drawing and mixed media.
Maureen Callaghan’s creative practice spans embroidery, drawing and mixed media. She focuses almost entirely on the self-portrait, depicting herself with repeated patterns and shapes that recur throughout her practice.
Her detailed portraits suggest an imaginary world that at times engulfs her, creating a protective layer where she surrounds herself in vibrant colour, flowers and nature.
