In 1999 Moynihan held her first exhibition at Sangeeta Thapa’s Siddhartha Art Gallery, and says she is thrilled to be working now with her daughter, Seetashma at Kathmandu Art Gallery.
In the 1970s Maura Moynihan attended the American School in New Delhi, and spent many years in Asia as a journalist, published two best-selling works of fiction, Yoga Hotel and Covergirl (most of which she wrote while in Nepal). She is also a singer and song writer, poet, model, actress, designer, and has exhibited in India, Nepal, Thailand and the US.
At 23, Moynihan appeared on the cover of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, and for five years Moynihan and Warhol worked together at Interview and co-hosted Andy Warhol’s tv.
“Andy encouraged me to develop all my talents and creativity. He was a kind and generous man, the most amazing person one could have as a mentor and a friend,” recalls Moynihan.
