Hi! I'm Maria. I love to make things. Whether it's drawings, music, blog posts, goofy poems, or crocheted elephants, I'm happiest when I'm creating. I love creating because that's when I feel most in touch with my vibrant and quirky self. It’s also when I feel the most in touch with my intuition and the least bogged down in the details of everyday life.

Thank you so much for being here. My hope for you is that you also feel in touch with your vibrant and quirky self. My goal in making and sharing art is to remind us all of the magic that exists within and around us. I believe it’s always there; we just have to keep our eyes open...

Here are a few of my favorite things that remind me of that magic:

Music theory (if I’m singing along to a song, I’m usually harmonizing, and if I’m listening to music, I’m likely analyzing it in my head)

Roasted vegetables

Sweet autumn clematis (I highly recommend finding some and smelling it!)


Pretty journals (I’m a pretty light packer but I always struggle with not bringing a big pile of journals and notebooks...each one has a different purpose, of course...)

Fun socks

Swimming in lakes

Being in nature


And of course, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...how could I leave those off my list? ;) 

Everything on my site, unless otherwise noted, is my own creation. If you'd like to share my work, please do so by linking back here. Thank you!
