MARIA FIELD, self-taught Brisbane artist (and chocoholic) began her love affair with art at the age of 5 when she received a 36 colour paint box, which became her most treasured possession.
Maria is constantly inspired by the sheer beauty of nature and the world around her and she strives to portray this love in all her work. She delights in creating colourful, clean, transparent watercolours, loving the challenge of the exhilarating medium with her work encompassing many subjects.
"Watercolour is so alluring, fresh, luminous and exciting and I never tire of its fluid seduction and spontaneity. I just have to paint, if I don't, I don't feel complete. It's as if these paintings are inside me and if I don't get them out I will simply explode! God has created a beautiful world and I would just like to portray some of that wonder. Subjects that inspire me usually have elements of light/shade, colour or shape."
She also loves to create vibrant floral oils and acrylics, impressionistic pastels and detailed pastel Pet Portraits.
