An artist who paints in oil, Maureen Rocksmoore is known for her ‘skyscapes’, capturing dramatic, vibrant skies on canvas. Having originally trained in Interior & Graphic Design, Moe graduated with merit from Glasgow Collage of Building & Printing in 1989.
Moe has many private clients in the UK as well as overseas and her work is held in private collections around the world. She travels extensively to paint and to tutor, in particular to Tuscany in Italy where she has spent time in residency and exhibiting. She exhibits regularly in Glasgow and her work can be viewed in many online galleries.
After working in Architecture for several years, Moe decided to return to Fine Art whilst pursuing a successful and varied career in Community Art and Education. Although a successful painter, her role with education is vitally important to her and she has developed her own programme of therapeutic input and professional art practice.
Moe’s work as an Arts Specialist in Education has seen her appointed to several Artist in Residency positions in a number of Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Glasgow schools and educational establishments. In this role, she has undertaken many important commissions and projects which have been presented to dignitaries and members of the Royal family, for example, as part of HM The Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
