OBrien is irresistably drawn to natural forms. The diverse textures, colors and shapes all speak to her in such a way that she is not content to just admire what she sees, she must put it to paper or canvas. This is something very familiar to her as her painting and drawing of nature began at the young age of 3 while growing up in Australia. Her work is also very much inspired by her practice of meditation, as she finds the light and vibrancy within, when tapped, can then be expressed in the external world.
OBrienís work is in private collections in the United States, South America, Europe and Australia.
