Maria lives and works in London, where she has just completed a graphic design course. Prior to studying graphic design, Maria's educational background includes an MA in illustration from Camberwell College of Arts and a BA (Hons) degree from Central Saint Martins, where she specialised in print. She has worked as an art and design lecturer in further education for many years and has an ever-growing curiosity to learn and discover new ways of working creatively. Throughout the years Maria has always strived to maintain the balance between digital and hand made elements within her work. She has always had a love for colour and enjoys the way in which colour can change a mood or atmosphere. Maria's growing interest in vintage children's picture books and current children's publishing from the UK and Europe, has influenced her personal projects most recently.
