Maria aims to capture the emotional impact of sea and sky in her paintings.
Her passion for their eternal movement is reflected in her vibrantly interpreted seascapes. Using layers of oil paint and gestural brush strokes to reach the desired effect, her work is largely figurative/representational with a dream-like edge.
Deep, mesmerizing colour is a keynote of her work.
She visits countries throughout Europe as well as America where she once lived, to witness enigmatic skies, sunsets and seas, to use in her work.
