Maureen Callahan

Artist Biography

Maureen Callahan’s creative practice spans, embroidery, drawing and mixed media. Callahan has a meticulous approach to creating her artwork at Venture Arts in Manchester, working with repetitive processes and themes of pattern, shapes and solid colours that are recurring through 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.
