Meet Maria

Maria's Motivation

  • My love of portraiture, light & motherhood motivates my photography.
  • My love of the Bible, encouraging others and color motivates my paintings.

Maria's Mission

  • My mission is to provide spiritual encouragement through my art and words. 
  • My prints are a tool to comfort and encourage each other with. 
  • My photography captures an ever-changing family & the beauty and love they share.


While living in South America with my husband, I sold over 150 original paintings. After returning to the States in 2005, I have been working freelance graphic design, building my portrait photography biz, selling my fine art prints and most importantly, raising my two kids.


I currently live in Kansas City with my husband, Jason, and two sweet teenagers, Isaac and Brianna, who are growing up way too fast.

Jason is a pastor at Westside Family Church and Isaac is the creator of a game called Nerf FPS.
