"Color makes me happy!"
Maria came to Florida in 1980 to study painting at Florida State University. She has been painting and selling her creations since the early 90’s at outdoor art festivals and through her gallery in St. Augustine, FL. Her work is filled with exuberant color and texture and is a reflection of all the subjects Maria holds dear - flowers, tropical scenes, animals, spirituality and abstract design....
... Her current passion is a series of abstract and textural flowers.
Maria would much rather be painting than talking about painting, but about her life as an artist, Maria has this to say-
“Im grateful to have a profession that I love and that always keeps me interested and engaged. That is a rare gift. Painting is also a way for me to connect. My favorite comment from people who view my work, and the one that I hear the most is ‘the colors make me happy!’ When I hear this it makes me happy!
