Making Things Happen

Hello, I’m Maria.
I teach visual art, I do art projects and I live in paradise. (Yes, it’s on Earth.)

Creating new objects in the transformation of materials is what I love the most.
Handmade pieces with an unique self contemporary identity.

References are everyday details: a picture, a pattern, a lost object on the street, that piece of wood that I brought from the beach …
The research is an essential object process – from the concept to the functionality all is explore and define.
The art techniques used have ancient origins – respecting and perpetuating the old generations knowledge.

I’ve a degree in Visual Education and I’ve been teaching visual art to humans between 10 and 14 years old.
I love the art of teaching ❤
