Mariana's interest for art began when she was very young. As a child she always had a pencil or brush in her hand. While other girls liked dress shopping, Mariana was happiest in the pen aisle...
She did visual arts throughout her schooling life and she graduated with a band 6 for her major body of work. This further encouraged her passion.
Mariana undertook some brief studies at the Art League in Houston, USA. In 2010 she stumbled upon the Watts Atelier of the Arts in San Diego, California.
For a year she attended regular classes and it was here that her eyes were truly opened to the possibilities and the magic of studying in this field and for the first time she saw it as a serious career path.
Now, back in Australia she is a student at the Julian Ashton Art School , where she continues to further her knowledge and practice of fine arts. She is a member of the Castle Hill Art Society where she also attends classes and workshops and where she has been working as a children's art teacher since 2013.

Having drawn for as long as I can remember, (one of my earliest memories being of trying to draw with a broken arm at age 3), I experienced my first art sale at age 15, when I sold 2 drawings in my school art show.
Following this, I had the thrill of having my first ever painting chosen to be exhibited in the ArtExpress exhibition of HSC art in 1981, when it was hung in the Sydney Town Hall, then travelled the state.
Whilst at University and during the following 7 or 8 years teaching in primary schools. I never lost my passion for drawing and the wonderful feeling of "losing myself" in a drawing, at this stage using pastel, a medium I still love.
Once my children were at school I was able to attend classes and workshops held at various Art Societies, where I experienced oils, plein air and acrylics. It wasn't until my 30's that I discovered the magic of watercolour, which continues to fascinate me with its unpredictability and luminosity.
Over the years I have sold acrylic, watercolour and pastel/mixed media works, and have recently developed an interest in portraiture. It is predominantly the play of light which fascinates me, and I like my works to exude a calmness & serenity.
I began teaching children's art classes from my home, after requests from my children's teachers and friends, and began children's classes for Castle Hill Art Society in 2008.
It is always a delight to see my students "losing themselves" in a drawing or painting in the same way that I do. In our fast-paced world I believe that it is so important to give our children the opportunity to experience "The Arts" in some form, with the relaxation & meditative benefits being a balance for the busyness of life, and enabling them to experience something that can bring them such enjoyment for their whole life.
