  “Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his paintings” – Henry Ward Beecher

Veronica Maguire is a very talented artist based in Ballybofey, Co. Donegal. 

Her work is diverse; contemporary, landscape or abstract. She is always inspired by nature and the incredible scenery of Donegal.

Mostly self taught, her art journey started in 2000. As a New Year resolution she decided to take classes and she joined the local art group. She has painted in several art programs in lreland, Croatia, Turkey, France, and Austria, experimenting with different mediums and using her intuition and her imagination. 

​Veronica works mainly with oils, alcohol inks and watercolours. She has always been inspired and drawn to the colours of nature, the ever changing light on the landscape, the reflections, the mountains, the colours of the trees and the movement of the sky and sea, the sparkle of the river and lakes.

The paintings in this collection were produced in lockdown during the pandemic. They are paintings from her own imagination, of places that she wanted to go to but couldn’t.

“During lockdown, I missed traveling to the coast, feeling the sand in my toes, the fresh sea air, our beautiful rugged landscapes and countryside, so I escaped into my art. Art in general is a wonderful way to push your horizons.

In these paintings, l have produced movement in the seas with the waves crashing against the rocks in a storm, also showing calm and stillness. I created houses on cliff edges which depict emotions of being isolated and lonely. I think that this period brought out all these feelings to most of us at that time.”
