Maria Pierides

Having grown up in Greece, Cyprus and the UK, living between two different worlds and the search for home, are themes that influence my work.  My actual painting process relates to these themes as I use mixed media, building up and scraping back areas of paint to capture the atmosphere, mass and light of the different places I have called home. Objects collected on my walks and through my travels often make it directly into my work, and I am also inspired by myths and poetry.
Having studied at The Central School of Speech and Drama and Goldsmiths University in London, I now live in Wales, working as a full time artist.
