Maria Burton is an emerging professional artist and has exhibited at a number of events in North Cumbria. Honoured with the 'People's Choice' accolade in the 2016 Cumbrian Artist Showcase awards AND, on 15th July 2017 Create Longridge 2017, Maria was awarded Exhibition Visitor's Prize winner! Maria's work is, without doubt, achieving "collectible" status. Throughout 2017, Maria is studying under Martin Kinnear at the Norfolk School of Painting, the UK's leading oil painting academy.
Working on location, taking sketches in charcoal, pencil, oil or watercolour Maria then moves into her Penrith studio to complete the piece. Specialising in oils, her paintings are part observation, memory, intrigue and awe, bringing energy through brushstrokes, echoing the feeling of being alive in one of the most dramatic landscapes in England and, occasionally in the lower lands of the UK, where skies stretch to the edge of the universe.
Commission work is always welcome; studio visits and online enquiries are also highly valued.
