  1. The stamps are a fantastic guide-post for this painting. I love it! As always, Maria, this is great.

  2. What are your favorite themes? I love to paint the figure, in particular female, and above all, the face and eyes. I have always love fairy tales, Hans Christian Anderson is my favorite. I love magic and mystery and often try to incorporate these things into my art. I love the spectacle of the the lives of ‘the performer’ whether that be circus performers, harlequins or ballerinas. I often paint them when they are NOT performing as I find this side of them, the private side, much more interesting. Lately, I have been doing painting about dreams. I consider myself the protector of my children’s dreams and aspirations. They can be so easily dismissed by people that they come across and I think it is important that they know that they can be what ever they dream or aspire to be. Dreams are so delicate, like the flowers and butterflies in my paintings. In some ways, I think that I am protecting my own dreams as well. My paintings are often about my children, being a mother and also remembering being a young girl myself. Your children can do that for you, remind you of your own childhood. It so special to be able to watch your children grow and, in a way, relive that part of your life.
