Sculptor Maureen Siobhán Riley grew into the sporting life quite early, learning about gun dogs from her Granddad and about sculpture from his best friend, Walter Midener. The shooting sports - sporting clays, horses, scuba diving, archery and fishing have played a big part in her life from childhood to the present - these country pursuits being the stuff of which her art is made.
Educated at Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan, Riley chose sculpture as a medium in which to express her experiences and was soon exhibiting and selling her work at shooting events.
Representational Bronze that focuses on a chance observation, a dynamic moment, these are the things that interest this sculptor. When creating a sculpture it is important to Maureen that she gets in front of her subject. Observation is key to creating that essence she strives for in her work.
