Meeting a local artist…MARIA MICHAEL

Inspired by nature and its elements, Maria Michael is a ceramist from Limassol. Working for more that 20 years with clay, Maria’s initial art exploration started with painting. After taking ceramic classes, clay won her heart. Her appreciation and connection with nature such as forests, trees, fairies and the sea are the themes depicted in her sensitive and earthy artworks. Her gentle soul and open spirit are embraced in her artworks and capture the audience. Creating for Maria offers a sense of freedom and wholeness.

Maria is currently offering a series of ceramic workshops for free, sponsored by the Deputy Ministry of Tourism as well as in collaboration with the Tourist Board of Limassol. The list of all the workshops can be found at the Heart Land of Legends Cyprus website at http://www.heartlandoflegends.com/workshops and they are running until December 2022.

In addition, Maria is also collaborating for a Centre for Children With Special Needs and offers a weekly workshop dedicated to these children as a means of art therapy.

Through the years, Maria has also participated in various group exhibitions on the island and her work has been shown at special events overseas. She has represented Cyprus in the 13th Children’s Festival with her ceramic and ink art work, ‘The abduction of Europea’ is part of the Fairy tale museum in Athens and was illustrated as the festival’s poster.

Further, Maria has participated with her Fairy sculptures at the group exhibition in honor of the 100 years of Vasilis Michaelides held by the Municipal Gallery in Limassol in 2017.
