welcome to my world!
Hi! I’m Maria Morris, a.k.a. Maria Portrait
I love my art and I love my life. But, it’s taken years to learn how to do both.
Teaching others how to experience the endless discovery and soul satisfaction there is in oil painting is what energizes me. I believe God created us to create and that our art glorifies Him and brings joy.
After studying art in college, I moved to South America with my husband. It was there that I began my professional career as an artist, selling over 150 watercolors during our eight years in Paraguay.
After years of raising my kids, freelancing with graphic design and family photography, I have returned to my first love which is painting.
