Maria P Urso is a 'natural' artist originally from the state of Pennsylvania. A total of 6 years of art and art history, Maria always had her own unique way of capturing life; for life is an art in itself. From playing the piano and guitar in her younger years, to ceramics, embroidery, crocheting, and needlepoint, she always found a way to keep busy with those things she loved most to do. She has a deep and sincere love of animals and nature, some friends may call her 'obsessed'; but deep passion is a better way to describe her love of animals. Her favorite breeds of dogs are those wrinkled laiden, squared, chubby muzzles (boxers, boston terriers, English bulldogs, French bulldogs, etc..). Her favorite wild animals are the wild cats and wolves and there has never been a time that a stray or hurt animal hasn't been taken in, loved, and cared for and set free again or found a forever home by Maria.
She has traveled much of the United States and lived in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Illinois, Texas and currently Alabama, but no matter where she lived her canine companions were always by her side in everything she did. From riding horses through the canyons of the Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque, New Mexico to fun on a sunny beach on the Atlantic Ocean or hiking the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee and Alabama, her life has been fulfilled as Maria's adventurous spirit traveled onward throughout the years and will continue to do so forever more.
Maria's art is eclectic with a major focus on photography at present. Other artworks include charcoal, graphite pencil and color pencil drawings, oil and watercolor paintings, digital art, fractals and pastels with a wide variety of subjects.
