Magical Watercolors by Maria Montiel

In addition to selling her own prints and artwork, Maria also creates custom work for clients. Much of her art is influenced by her native country of Venezuela. Currently, Maria lives in Barcelona, Spain but she continues to be inspired by her childhood and heritage. It lends to a bold, colorful, and personal style.

Maria has definitely done so much with her career already. But she is not done! She would also like to see her designs on a bedding collection and has already started to create ideas to do this. You can find some options in her shop on her website, where she has partnered with Deny designs. One other aspiration is to have her own solo show where she can exhibit her work for the world to see.

You will enjoy looking through Maria’s most recent work (much of which is available for sale too). Her work with original watercolors and transforming them into seamless repeat prints, digital images, and vintage prints is particularly fabulous.
