Maria is a Moscow based artist-illustrator and a practicing architect. She has been drawing her entire life, but became seriously drawn to the field in 2010 when she began to develop her own, unique style. In 2012 she organized her first solo art exhibit showcasing her architectural drawings and watercolor sketches. She had numerous group-exhibits and has been commissioned by both magazines and websites.
Maria’s training in architecture has significantly influenced her drawing style; she loves composing intricate, black-and-white architectural illustrations. Recently, she has focused her attention on creating adult-coloring books: her first title, Volshebnya Strana Stchastiya, was published in Russia in March 2016. Three new titles, both in Russia and the United States, will be published in late 2016.
