Maria Marino, PSA, IAPS-MC

Maria Marino graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Interior Architecture. After a career as an interior designer of corporate and educational facilities, Maria began painting full-time in 2015.

Her time is split between painting en plein air and in the studio. 

Maria’s paintings focus on intimate settings in the natural world and on moments of nature bathed in rich warm light. Her roots are deep in the tradition of drawing, it being the binding element and the foundation of her art.

Maria’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and she is represented by several galleries in the US. She is a Signature member of the Pastel Society of America, as well as an Exhibiting Artist member of the National Arts Club of NYC and a member of the Master Circle of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS).
