Maura Allen

BIOGRAPHY

Through the use of silhouetted imagery, texture and color, Maura Allen creates work that speaks to the rugged nature of the American West. Her 30+ year experience as a black and white photographer is the starting point of her print work. She pushes the boundries of traditional printmaking, using positive and negative space to present bold and powerful works of art.

Rodeos, horses and ranching weren't always a part of her life, but through many trips to cowboy country she has become inspired by the Ranchers and Cowboys that have subsequently the predominant subjects of her artwork.
