About Me

Maura FishingI do not color inside the lines.

After living in the Nashville, Tennessee area for nearly two decades, I pulled up stakes in 2012 and moved to Central Florida where I now live with my husband.  It is here, into my home studio that I escape unplug and unwind, surrounded by the sights and sounds of Mother Nature, immersed in color, texture, line. Life is grand and I make art.

When I create, I am often unfettered, and occasionally stray toward the wild and unhinged. I lose track of time as if on a bender and I guess it’s safe to say I am on one. Only it’s not drug or alcohol induced. I paint single media works including oil, acrylic and watercolor abstracts, figurative and landscape paintings, as well as mixed media works.

My artworks can be found in private collections and gracing corporate and institutional walls. They’ve been included in shows in Europe, ANZPac, and the U.S. from coast to coast. I draw inspiration from nature, and my process is organic. I work in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, charcoal, graphite, and encaustic. Making art is one of my greatest joys and hope that translates into my work.
