Maureen Callaghan

Artist Biography

Maureen Callaghan’s creative practice spans, embroidery, drawing and mixed media. Callaghan has a meticulous approach to creating her artwork, working with repetitive processes and themes of pattern, shapes and solid colours that are embedded in 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.
