Maria specialises in lino cuts and draws inspiration from her love of nature and the wildlife that inhabits urban London and the English countryside.

She graduated from The London College of Printing with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design, specialising in Printmaking. Having worked as a graphic designer in branding and packaging for 25 years, she has resumed her passion for printmaking from her studio in South London.

Daughter to a Polish émigré fine artist, her creative development has grown within the context of Poland’s rich and unique heritage in folk art. Maria’s prints are all original limited editions, generally ranging from sets of 10 to 50. Each print is individually numbered and signed. She has exhibited in joint shows at Sprout Arts and has participated in the Wandsworth Artist Open House events. A selection of her work is stocked at Love Art in Tooting Market and www.gallerypicollo.co.uk. She also runs regular Printmaking workshops.
