This week Maria was interviewed by Liz from “Try not to curse”- podcast about her art practice, about her past living in Germany, the US and quite a lot more. Go check it out!
The 62nd Toronto Outdoor artfair was a great success. Maria’s booth location was excellent and had thousands of visitors. Sales were good and more than 50 works were sold including the brand new “Enveloping Calm” artist proof.
Thank you kindly for all the fantastic folks who brought their art appreciation and enthusiasm to the Toronto Outdoor Artfair. Maria has made available a selection of works in her online shop for those who couldn’t make it to the fair.
