Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Maria, and I am a Boston based artist with a taste for travel. I was born to a Polish family, so I was raised with a love for the traditional art and folklore of my country. My sense of nostalgia is evident in my art making process. I’m always on the move, picking up paintbrushes and colorful paper from every country I visit as a usable momento to my time spent traveling. Every work I make has a piece of my memory attached to it, and I treat each moment in my studio as an opportunity for self reflection and even a bit of meditation. Cutouts take a long time to make, and each little cut is a moment for peaceful contemplation.

Currently I am a studio assistant and instructor in SoWa, Boston’s design district, and I work full time as an independent artist. If you would like a cutout of your own or would like to ask a question, please feel free to get in touch! I’m always excited to work with new people.
