Dame Orangutan print
Maggie was inspired to paint this after watching a documentary called, “The Last Orangutan Eden.” These gentle apes are at risk because of the palm oil industry and the exotic pet trade. If you’re interested in learning more, she suggests checking out the documentary. Here, she's hoping to empower this shy little orangutan by making her a queen.
This print is from an original watercolor by Maggie Hurley, modified slightly through the wonders of technology. Printed on archival Epson Heavy Matte paper, the final image measures 8″ x 10″ on 8.5” x 11″ paper, leaving a border for framing. Each print is signed and titled.
Maggie Hurley uses watercolors, pencils, and digital media to create her whimsical art. Each piece seems to open the window into a new magical world-from tiny robots wandering in fields of dandelions, to the adventures of a wayward owl, to the hidden royalty of the animal world. Maggie finds inspiration in the way light bounces off skyscrapers, and in the views of clouds from airplane windows. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
