Maria Petrov

As a self-taught artist, I have always felt a strong need to create. The pull to express my view of the world through visual art has been an integral part of who I am and helped me through both happy and hard times.

Water and air have been my endless source of inspiration and the theme in many of my paintings. The sheer impossibility to capture the essence of water, waves, sky and air make me attempt to depict them in different ways, using various techniques and drawing upon numerous means of expression.

I also love to experience with colour and light, finding expressive means of capturing the world around us through my vision and passion.

My paintings are meant to feel alive. More than that, they are meant to make the viewer feel alive. A painting that evokes emotion – is my outmost desire as an artist.
