Maria is a freelance illustrator living and working in Johannesburg. She completed a degree in Information design at the University in Pretoria as well as a Masters degree in Illustration at the University of Stellenbosch.
Maria prefers a hand-drawn approach to illustration, as she believes that this ensures each piece has a unique personal touch.
Her preferred mediums are watercolour, acrylic paint, colour pencils, combined with just a touch of collage. Maria works in a wide range of applications, from picture books and commercial projects, to gallery pieces and private commissions.
