Maria, is a graduate from Nottingham Trent University in Fine Art with Foundation studies at Bolton College of Art in the ‘70’s. Her work has been exhibited at Patchings, the Octagon Theatre, Haymarket Theatre, the Little Theatre Leicester as well as galleries in Thorsby, Nottingham and Uppingham.

Experimenting with painterly techniques, print, computer drawing and mixed media helps her to create visual stories. 

"Last summer my work was work small and intimate, some pieces only 10 cms sq., done with the intention of sharing the atmosphere and sense of place that my holiday trips provided.

Since then I’ve enjoyed working at a larger scale on local landscapes as the seasons start to change affording me the opportunity to play with light and colour. My work is unashamedly decorative and colourful, the aim is simply to be joyous.

I'm delighted to say I'll be exhibiting at Art House Leicester on 7,8 & 9 June 2024. See my Art House page for some examples that will be on view."
