Morag Mc Cafferty
Keeping Donegal With You Through Art
Morag is an exceptionally talented landscape/realism Artist, based in Gaeltacht Ranafast in NW Donegal. Inspired by her beautiful surroundings, she loves to recreate local scenes. The gallery is open to the public and you are welcome to come in and chat and browse the paintings and prints for sale.
Inspired and encouraged by her late father, Morag is mostly self-taught and has been painting since 2010, selling seriously since 2019. The demand for her work has been fantastic and prints of her paintings have become so popular that she has had to do many re-prints. Prints are limited to just 100 each edition; when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Morag’s style is realism/contemporary, and her preferred medium is oils on canvas, board or MDF. She mostly uses photographs to paint from as she is an absolute sucker for detail, but like most artists, ends up adding or taking away parts as a painting evolves. She also enjoys a bit of contemporary abstract painting where “I just see where my head takes me.”
Where it all started.
Morag originates from Glasgow but with her roots are from the Scottish Island of Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides, her late Father and her Late Mother coming from Emyvale, County Monaghan, there is an exciting mix of Landscape in her Heritage so living now with the Donegal Gaeltacht backdrop of Rann na Feirste and the Wild Atlantic on her doorstep it always evokes a desire to paint the colours of the beauty and drama that comes hand in hand with this area.
But even a city had beauty and drama, and Morag brings the magisterial architecture to life. Outdoors meets indoors.
Morag describes her house as being pretty bare and dull when her children were small (times were busy and funds were tight) so she decided to try and paint a few paintings to liven up her home. Reactions to her work from family and friends spurred her on to fulfil her dream.
“Nosey Parker” – because every close and every Glasgow tenement has at least one! – is available as a fine art print.
