about maria

My work celebrates the beauty of embracing the unknown, fostering curiosity, and inviting viewers to embark on their own imaginative journeys through my creations. 


My paintings aren’t planned, they happen. They evolve and I let myself be transported to that time and that place.   A piece will often start in one place and end up a season or world away; that world ultimately defined by the person viewing the art. 


I’m seeking depth and peace with the world around us, without constraints, without formal boundaries.  As a self-taught artist I’m often unconventional with my techniques and this allows me to explore and broaden my understanding and view into what’s possible.  One of my favorite comments from a purchaser of my work was, “I don’t know what’s out there, but I need to go there now.”  This perfectly sums up the impact of the work.  My creations are interesting, engaging, and prompt a desire to go deeper into the world created.


I paint primarily in oils and acrylics creating dimension by layering paints and other mediums, collage and by utilizing a variety of surfaces, including old paintings that didn’t quite make the cut.


I live for cooking for friends, live music, gardening, yoga, camping, and hanging with friends and family. I’m an expert at both hiking high mountains and binge-watching good TV.  

I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoy creating it!  If you're interested in adding one of my pieces to your collection, just shoot me a message.
