Maria is an Australian Jordanian contemporary artist based in Dubai. She aspires to convey a positive energy through her use of colour and organic shapes. Maria graduated from RMIT in 2017 with a diploma in visual Art, and as an immigrant in Australia, she embraced the diversity that shaped her artistic identity. In her work, Maria explores the balance between chaos and order, often combining abstract elements with more realistic forms.
Maria works across different disciplines and media, from acrylic paint to resin and digital art.
Having recently moved to Dubai, Maria is eager to explore the thriving art scene and connect with her Middle Eastern heritage.
In 2022, Maria launched Emzee, a swimwear brand that features some of her digital art.
