Hello, I am the fourth our of five generations of women in my family to go to college for an art degree. I was around art throughout my life, but I did not know that I HAD to be an artist until I went away to my freshman year of college for something completely different.
From that time on I worked to get my Bachelor of Fine Art and Master of Fine Art for Painting. I have taught Art at the college level, trained artists about Art Materials.
My main focus in art has been portraits since I was 18. You can see my portraits and many other things on my website: www.maia-arts.com
