Sacrificing the rewards of legal practice for a new creative path, Maria paints "things that I like" in oils & watercolour.
Maria was born and grew up on the North East coast of England. She is drawn to the variety and inspiration of the coastal landscape.
She is creating a series of maritime paintings in oils inspired by a road trip from the Farne Islands to Dungeness. A keen outdoor swimmer, Maria is also painting a series of Lido paintings.
Maria paints 'en plein air ' out and about in her beautiful home county of Northumberland, and beyond. She is currently a shortlisted artist for the New Light Art Prize 2020.
