Maria lives in Oakland now, but came to stay at our Brooklyn apartment for several days in August. She was just as delightful as my friends had described, and, as a bonus, I discovered that she's an incredible artist to boot. Highlights from her website include a 2014 calendar celebrating seasonal fruits and veg,
a lush, leafy homage to herbs,
a series of striking painted portraits,
and "Joni Mitchell's Milk & Honey," which just might be my favorite (available for purchase here).
See more at Maria's website here (which includes a lovely selection of textiles and her online shop), and have a beautiful Wednesday.
