Painting the Town – My First solo Exhibition

Painting the Town

Finding her way back into visual art and expression in later life, Maria loves to express her emotions and experiences through art. She wants to reflect her place within the history and heritage of her adopted home of Bailieborough. Moving to Cavan in recent years has given her the time to create, and to delve into  the history of the town where she now lives.

Artist’s Statement

‘Painting the Town’ is a collection of line and wash pieces that began during lockdown. I went out and about taking photos of the fairly deserted streets of Bailieborough. My photos inspired the creation of a series of watercolours of buildings and shop fronts which led me to find out about their history also.

My first solo exhibition reflects my love of  artistic expression, history and heritage.

A labour of love on all counts.

I’m still working on ‘Painting The Town’ and will add to the collection as I complete more pieces!
