About Me

Maura FishingI do not color inside the lines and when given the choice, always choose the road less taken. It can be a challenge, but it’s something I’ve never regretted.

The East coast and Nashville have been my home throughout my life’s journey and I now reside in suburban Maryland near my tribe. I tried Florida not too long ago, but after seven years of incessant (and increasing) seasons of heat, missed the change of seasons. It is also great to live near the Nation’s Capital with access to so much culture and stimulation. I feel alive.

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, only this one is not drug or alcohol induced. I paint single media works including oil paintings, acrylic paintings and watercolor paintings in abstract, figurative and landscape form, and often let loose in mixed media works too.

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 I hope that message translates into the overarching message taken from my work. Check the gallery for some of my recent favorites.
