About Maria Urso

Maria P Urso is a 'natural' artist originally from the state of Pennsylvania. Maria began painting and sketching as a young child as she watched her talented father draw and sketch his own cartoon-like characters. His deep love of animals wild and domestic was passed on to Maria as a child as she loved to help her father work and care for the animals on her grandparent's land, helped reap the crops that were sewn and care for the beautiful flowers in the four giant greenhouses. It was the way of living in those years and customers new the family very well and people would come from all over for the fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers while taking in a bit of the scene around the house with the animals and children running about.

As she entered high school and attended 4 years of art classes, delving into chalks, acrylic and oil paintings, pastels, ceramics, jewelry and more. Her passion was to create... experiment... and create some more. Later Maria attended art classes and art history classes UAB in Birmingham, AL excelling at art and her other passion writing. As scenes changed and life's changes came about she traveled most parts of the United States, from Pennsylvania to California and from the North, Illinois to Florida. She lived and learned the lifestyles of different people across the lands, the terrain, the plants and flowers, the animals zoned in that area. She'd ride until her hearts content where no man would be caught left alone at dark, where the oryx lived, the coyote, the mountain lion, in the Sandia's, the largest mountain in New Mexico. It was there on horseback where her heart ran wild and she searched for those things that not many would venture out to find.

God was in those places and in the life that lived there and in the hearts of the people who dwelt there. She visited Indian reservations, has gone to pow wows and became friends with them. She fell in love with their beliefs and their spirituality, their love for life itself and their respect for that life; and in particular, her love of wolves grows more each time she gets to visit the Indian Wolf Preservation here in Ashland Alabama. A Sanctuary for these beautiful animals.
