Maria Paz shares one of her favorite quotes with The Rickie Report, ” True art is not a gimmick, it is a creative process where what is created evokes an emotion …. if I can do that through my work, I would have done my job”.  Born in Manila, Philippines, Maria came to Boston, MA at age 8. At age 11, Maria took “Perspective Architectural Drawing” where “outdoor field work” was involved at The Boston Museum of Fine Arts every Saturday morning. At age 14, she studied Acrylic & Oil Painting during the summer months at Massachusetts College of Art(MASSART). Cable vision hired Maria to design & build their backdrop while she was still a high school student!

Wanting to be an Art Major, Maria began building her portfolio in high school & was awarded scholarships, including the Bergfors Rice Award.  With offers from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and Parsons NY, Maria chose the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York to study Fine Arts as it had many “working artists” as professors.

Maria also lived in Paris, France for 6 months and studied Fine Art at Parsons in Paris. Her “Reclining Nude” was exhibited at a Paris gallery.  Upon returning to NY & living in Manhattan, Maria worked while studying nude figurative drawing at The Arts Student’s League.  She was often commissioned to paint portraits, which can be found in numerous private collections internationally.
