About

Maria is a contemporary artist based in Melbourne. She aspires to convey a positive energy through her use of colour and organic shapes. As an immigrant in Australia, she embraced the diversity that shaped her artistic identity. Maria graduated from RMIT in 2017 and is currently a full-time practicing contemporary artist. In her work, Maria explores the balance between chaos and order, often combining abstract elements with more realistic forms.

Maria volunteers as an Art Exhibition Support at the Royal Women’s Hospital.
