Maria is a 21 year-old student currently attending NSCAD University (Nova Scotia College of Art & Design) in Halifax, N.S. She will be graduating in 2019 with her BFA, Major in Photography. Maria is lucky to have the opportunity to try various artistic mediums throughout her university experience. Her home base is the small town of Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Like many others, the best and worst thing about me as an artist is that I cannot decide on one thing I love to do most within the visual arts. If there is something I do know about myself, it is plain and simply this:
I love creating for myself and others, connecting and learning
Photographing unique moments in time for people then working hard behind the scenes to create a visual collection of photographs they will love, fuels me as a creative. I want to be able to connect with my clients and learn about them. To learn how they feel in front of a camera and how make our time together enjoyable, comfortable and carefree.
I draw, paint and have personal projects but also spend a lot of time working on commissions for clients. These commissions range from: tattoo design, custom paintings/drawings (designs, people, pets, wildlife etc), wooden signs and I recently gave a ukulele surface a new paint job.
