Maria says, "My mother, is an accomplished artist and growing up with an artist mother, I feel I have always searched for a way of personal expression. I could never match my mother's interpretation of her Southern experience, so I have, with honesty, tried to develop my own Southern experience. This in the end leaves me walking in the other direction from her, but down the same old-field road. This state I live in holds everyday mystery and magic. The yellow ochre wash of late afternoons, the early morning, misty fog, and the all day humidity are reoccurring themes that show up in my artwork."
