Work Experience
Having spent many years in Russia Maria witnessed big historical events, such as the fall of the Soviet Union that gave many artists a chance to explore their individual talents.

Despite these political changes it wasn't until she visited her Ecuadorian father in his hometown Guayaquil, Maria started to develop her painting skills. The bright colors of the Guayas region played a critical role in this evolution and formed her artistic style, colorful, vibrant and bright. To pursue her dream as an artist Maria entered the Design and Drawing Faculty of Astrakhan and successful graduated in 2001.

Since 2006 Maria has been a member of the International Art Fund and participated in numerous exhibitions and competitions around the world, including The 7th Annual Art InterNational Exhibition at BoxHeart Expressions Gallery in Pittsburgh, the Manhattan Arts Gallery in New York, the House of the Artist in Moscow, Banca Monte dei Paschi di Sena Spa in Brussels and many others. Her paintings can be found in private collections in Russia, Belgium, Chile, Ecuador, Greece, Italy, Spain and USA.

Together with painting, Maria is also working on design projects and doing book covers and illustrations. She is the artist of the book covers for The Dragon of Prali (2010) and The Wizard of Prali (2011), the first two books of the Prali Trilogy, by the American writer Davidson L. Haworth.
