After receiving her diploma in Audiovisual Media at the University of Media in Stuttgart in 2007, Maria started working as a freelance 3d Animation Artist. She mainly worked for Studio SOI on award winning projects such as "Angel afoot", “Princess' Painting” or "The Gruffalo". Her passion for creating images, that tell a story of their own and creating unique environments and characters, which appeal to the viewer and entertain with their looks and personality, has led her to turn her creativity towards illustration and design. She lives with her two daughters and spouse in a small town in Germany, drawing whatever crosses her mind or catches her eye.
