Maria likes to look on the "brighter side of life", which is evident in her delicate yet dazzling watercolor paintings. Born and raised in England, Maria exhibited an artistic flair from an early age but was discouraged to pursue her passion in favor of getting a 'proper' job. Years later she was to find a new and exciting vehicle through a medium that portrayed a universal language and needed no verbal communication to depict her message - Watercolors.
Having travelled extensively through Europe, Maria spent some of her happiest years in and around the Greek Islands. In 1989 Maria took on a more permanent role when she moved to Florida, and continued to work in the International travel industry. Having found her passion in life, Maria is now a full time artist and uses her natural talent to teach classes to those she continues to inspire.
