Maria enjoys working in series, as this gives her the opportunity to fully explore ideas. Her new acrylic/mixed-media paintings use the grid as a starting point. Familiar images such as birds, houses and airplanes have become a part of her visual language. Her background as an animator continues to influence her style. Putting together words and images to create her visual journal is what inspires her. Her work encourages the viewer to interpret and create their own story.

Maria, a mixed media artist, has participated in the Open Studios Fall Artist Tour for several years. She has also been featured in the Open Studios Gallery at Rembrandt Yard.
