Artist: Maria Jose
Exhibition date: August 2015
My name is Maria Jose and I am a 15 year old girl who loves painting. I developed my interest in drawing at the age of 7 and started painting at the age of 10. So far I have finished 80 paintings. My favourite medium is oil because of the smooth, creamy consistency. I also do acrylic paintings. My future dream is to get a degree from Harvard University and to become a professor in art or architecture. I maintain excellent grades in all subjects at school and participate in many extracurricular activities including Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Bollywood, Bharathanatyam, badminton, debate club and more. I volunteer at different places including the Arts Council Windsor & Region.
My style varies from realistic to abstract, depending on my mood. Painting allows me to express my feelings and thoughts in a creative way. The beauty of nature inspires me, the melody of music brings me to a whole new world and the strokes made by my brushes magically creates a beautiful piece of artwork.
I believe in my inner feelings which tells me to share my joy with you all, the gift that was given by God. Your appreciation will be another reason for my inspiration to continue my journey. Expecting your blessings. –Maria Jose.
