Maura O'Rourke - Artist

As an artist my sense of place and my life experiences have had a huge influence on many completed pieces. Energy from the landscape and nature which I believe is alive and tangible now become part of the accumulated layers, marks and tonal expressions on the canvas. Other experimental additions will also become part of the final visual experience as the background becomes the very soul and fabric of the work.
