About Maureen O’Mahony Art Painting Heirlooms

About Maureen O’Mahony Art. For Maureen its all about the visual. Originally from Tipperary, via Dublin Maureen is  now living near Tralee in the wild and beautiful Co. Kerry.
A self taught artist, her approach to colour and form is influenced by the techniques of the old masters. Maureen paints people primarily children informally, in settings that capture those fleeting moments of time.

She is the creator of an immensely popular series of GAA themed Fine Art Prints depicting the importance of the tradition of the GAA in modern day Ireland. Her original GAA paintings are sold for special birthday gift, corporate gifts, weddings and christenings.

Maureen is a full time artist.

“For me it is all about the visual”.

I work from photographs and but also from life and imagination. I love working with bright vibrant colours and pattern. Children are wonderful to work with so free and spontaneous, and an absolute pleasure to paint.”

Children are very special and live completely in the moment, through my work I seek to capture their essence, their inner light.”

” My two favourites artists  are the old masters   Rembrandt and John Singer Sargent for many reasons including their attention to detail, but mainly their technical skill and use of light and shadow.”

“I use the classic techniques of the Old Masters with a contemporary flair.”

 Some of her paintings are also available as Fine Art Prints. There is a selection of GAA themed painting, fine Art Prints and Christmas Cards available on the online shop also. Please have a browse through the website. Her work is rich vibrant and filled with light
