Artist's Statement
The expression of beauty in any subject is Maria's primary goal. She is always looking for the flow of light which creates the magic in the form in any subject. Her preference is to paint from life and on location to best capture her first artistic impressions and emotional connection to the subject although she has painted from photographs as well. Maria seeks to convey a unique character and mood in each painting, such as tranquility, power, or joy to name a few. While  seeking to record a specific moment, she strives to create a dialogue between art and life.
Although Maria would describe her painting style as representational with an impressionistic sensibility, she enjoys experimenting with different approaches to paint application and composition depending on the subject. She is always reaching for excellence in each artistic expression.
