Maureen Siobhán Riley
Sculptor and painter
"My goal is to put into bronze or fill canvases with the grace and joy of the open
countryside and the movement and gusto of its inhabitants." - Mo Riley
Welcome to the website of Maureen Siobhán Riley. "Mo" as she is known by her friends.
Sculpture and painting are two languages that afford me an opportunity to express my excitement for a subject. Sculpture and painting are two languages about which I am deeply passionate. Learning the technical skills to be a better sculptor and a better painter are the tools that work synergistically,together they help me to see and express more effectively.
My training is continuous, as I seek out those that inspire me and try to learn from them. Museums, and books help me to connect to the past. Also sometimes, a workshop is offered by some of the artists living today.If I am lucky enough to be a part of those workshops, they are a great deal of work.
They are quite simply.... intense inspiration, hard won. And I feel is very important to put yourself in those situations as uncomfortable as they can be, they hold opportunity for the most growth.
My goal is to put into bronze or fill canvases with the grace and joy of the open countryside and the movement and gusto of its inhabitants.
This site contains a growing collection of both sculptures and paintings. In addition you will find Maureen's Biography, Contact Information and a Schedule of Shows and Events.
