Maria paints in watercolors her favorite medium. Although she will paint on watercolor paper, she prefers canvas. She seals her canvas with a sealant for lasting color and to guard against fading. Maria likes to vary her subject and will move from birds, to flowers, to landscape. She paints largely from photography taken by herself so the possibilities are limitless.
Maria has studied art since high school, taking classes, workshops, and trips to museums. She has begun showing her art.
