WIND IN HER HAIR STUDIO
Maria C. Doglio
The artistic theme has run through the core of my being like a river since I was a young girl. Art and creativity was a family theme – craftsmen, artists and seamstresses who worked the most amazing needlework all influenced my world of creativity. I am mostly a self-taught artist, taking up workshops here and there through the years and doing a lot of experimenting. I stopped painting for 25 years until, in 2005, my patient, but slumbering artistic muse was pricked awake by the influence of living in Sedona, AZ. The enormous creative energy that surrounded me in the landscape, galleries and culture of the Native Americans of that region pushed me in a way that opened up the floodgates so that there was no holding back. I stepped back into the art world with a new perspective that translates onto canvas the many facets of who I am. The Sedona world taught me to paint from the inside out, that anything goes and that painting intuitively brings to the canvas the best success. As I paint, I listen to the voice of what is emerging.
After moving back to California, I joined a group of visionary artists that taught with a liberating approach that gave me guidance in visionary painting. The mentorship of Visionary Artists, Shiloh Sophia McCloud, Sue Hoya Sellars and Mary McDonald taught me how to connect on an even deeper level with a painting.
Today, my artistic journeys continue in an eclectic style. I paint or craft what moves me. In October of 2019, I moved my studio to a new Home: West Pawlet, Vermont. I am embracing my New England roots and the surrounding beauty of this country side will be reflected in my art.
