Circus Girl by Maria PAce Wynters


I would like to know more about this artist that I bookmarked as soon as I joined etsy. This woman is both and artist and children's book illustrator and I defy anyone to look at just one of her paintings.. It is like eating one potato chip, you can't. Her style is a mixture of old world mystery and splendor with a dash of Chagall color and surrealism yet grounded in a firm storyline that is woven through the image telling a story all by itself. I am so impressed with her originality and subject matter and also admire her for being with her kids. The childlike innocence theme runs through many of her subjects and she never fails to thrill me with her work. Please check out her store and her website to see more of Maria's beautiful and haunting images.. I am pleased to feature her today. In her own words she says.."I am a mixed media artist that works on both canvas and paper. Currently my subject revolves around what I revolve around: My daughters and life as a stay at home Mum. Not always easy but more than a little gratifying. "

Thank you so much for everything you said. I am a 'wishful' children's book illustrator. As of yet, I have had nothing published ...not that I have approached anyone yet.

Wow! You compared me to potato chips ... they are my favorite snack ... and Chagal! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have to send you a photo of Imogen looking at a Chagal painting in MOMA. It is amazing.

Anyway...thanks so much. Your encouragement means so much. It makes me want to create more. This is huge because sometimes I wonder what I am doing and if it is any good at all.
May I add you to my bog roll?

Best wishes,

Maria
