"This piece is very special to me.
It was the first Mix-Media painting that I have ever done in two dimensions.
It spoke to me in a way no words can explain.
That being said I just knew I had to donate her for such a great cause.
I also enjoy working with tissue paper, with which I have applied to the background, mixed with acrylic paint.
Her eyes are also hand made by me. She also has collage paper, fibers and fabric.
Her face is painted in watercolors.
I will be creating more unique Maria’s.
I loved every moment of making her."
