From the visual aspect her work is stunning, but there is more than that. What I love the most about her paintings is the atmosphere. Looking at her work observer can get easily lost in the shapes, perspective and color, thus making a dimension of its own. I loved this painting “From the window”, the emotion here is grey, but inviting, the blue color adds up to the feeling of a quiet emotion being slowly awoken through this painting.

The connection is so strong in her painting “The Look”, the connection between the figures in the painting, between the colors, shapes but also with the observer.

Beside her painting work, Maria also started to participate in fashion design, but using her own prints, she applies them in her designs seamlessly.
