Maggie G. Moran is an abstract painter who focuses on the continuation of line and patterns in space, translated onto a two-dimensional surface. Moran describes herself as an intuitive painter of invisible forces and vibrations that, in their repetition, dictate our individual reality. For Moran, painting is about trusting the process itself. For her, a specific emotion or a color chord serves as a starting point that she then allows to develop into a composition naturally.

Moran works with layers of transparent oils, though occasionally she experiments with materials like tape, wax, or epoxy. Her paintings, such as Ode or Waiting Room demonstrate that she has a keen eye for color and composition, and also handles line masterfully. She enjoys the fact that each viewer sees something different in her work. The artist believes that paintings are akin to clouds that are always transforming into new shapes. Moran has dedicated her career to art. She studied Studio Art at Lehigh University and has worked as a Curator, Art Consultant, and Gallery Director.
