Maria Martin is an Artist and an Interior Designer living in Austin, Texas. She sees space, color, texture and shape as a palette to create and embrace people. She graduated from The University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design while double majoring in Studio Art.
After spending over a decade operating exclusively in the professional realm of Interior Design, Maria began to translate her strengths in color, light, and texture into her art. In her exploration of watercolor on surfaces, she allows herself to break through the self-imposed boundaries set in place by traditional use of this medium and creates more dynamic and compelling pieces. Maria refuses to be a purist and continues to experiment by utilizing a variety of materials that complement and contrast the treasured elements of watercolor.
