Maura Taylor Buckley was born in North County Dublin where she has continued to live and work, drawing her inspiration from the variety of the county. She exhibits frequently in Ireland, regularly at the RHA Annual Exhibition and her work is in private collections all over the world. Maura’s flair for design was inspired by Professor Romain; her mentor at the NCAD (National College of Art & Design, Dublin). Her pen and ink cityscapes invoke the essence of old Dublin where she was inspired by both the simple architecture of the back streets and Dublin’s impressive Georgian facades. Her rural roots are evident from the landscapes and seascapes of North County Dublin, a perennial favourite being the coastlines of Portrane. Maura is probably best known for her impressive still life.
