Maria's work has been collected in the US, UK and Europe. She has exhibited at The Mall Galleries London and The South West Academy of Fine & Applied Arts, amongst others. She has currently passed the first round for entry to The Royal Hibernian Exhibition, Dublin (2020) with "Somebody Loves Me” and also for The English Art Club, Mall Galleries, with “About to Rain….” She received a Special Merit in March 2020 for her painting "Winter" from Light Space Time online art gallery. Her work aims at a realism/abstract style aiming to capture a mood or memory. She is drawn to pattern and simplification and playing with words. Her sculptures, however, often stem from experimenting with materials, such as the whimsical “Knitter’s Chair”. Recently, she has been inspired by Beatrix Potter’s tale of the “Tailor of Gloucester” resulting hopefully in a soft sculpture of the tailor in the future. Maria was born in Dublin and moved to London in the 1980s. Her artistic experience covers drawing, painting, and textile art, resulting in a mixed-media approach. In 2008 She received a Distinction for her final studies in textile art while at Windsor College, U.K. After working from a small studio in her back garden she was delighted, when in 2013, she set up a studio at Wimbledon Art Studios, Earlsfield, London, where she combines her previous artistic experiences; resulting in a diverse style. Inspiration has been drawn from the Dhunami teachings (dhunami.org) and researching artists such as Mach, Matisse, Klimt, Sonya Delaunay and Claes Oldenburg.
