Welcome to my Studio/Art Gallery

This is where imagination takes over and beautiful creations are born :-)

Who Am I?

My background

My name is Maria Meade and I was Born & raised in NE PA. I moved to SC in 1998 & that is where I reside today. I love my family, the weather and the seasons but most of all I love to draw and paint.

I create all sorts of Art by Design, including face portraits, abstract art, urban sketching and fantasy art.  You will find many different types and styles in the Art Gallery. If you don't see what you are looking for just drop me a line and we'll see what we can some up with for you :-) 

My experience

I am a self-taught artist who has been learning and studying on my own from a very young age.  I had a paper route as a young girl and used that money to purchase "how to draw" books.  As the internet came alive, I started taking classes online and buying "at your own pace" courses.  Then, approximately 5 years ago, I created a blog and started to post some of my work online. I enjoy drawing a lot of things however, my favorite types of sketching include Urban Sketching, Face Drawing, and drawing anything from nature. You'll find my works of art on the Art Gallery page.  

My vision

Well, my vision tends to lean more towards the abstract however, I enjoy using graphite and ink to do traditional portraiture as well.  To be honest, I have to be inspired by the subject, whether it's a face drawing, urban sketching or whatever it may be. If it will hang in my Art Gallery I need to be "All In".  I enjoy the flow of watercolors, the feel of oils, and the hardiness of acrylics but what excites me most is knowing I can use whatever I have at my disposal to create with!  There are really no limits!
