Maria Collier

Maria is a Colombian born abstract artist who has lived in SW Florida for 40 years.  She was born an artist but began painting on canvas after being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. The healing that occurred from being aligned with her true passion was life changing. The unusual tools she uses to move the paint around can be found in hardware stores. She uses them intuitively along with her other passion, music. Music is an integral part of her work. She names most of her work after the songs that inspire her and places the lyrics on the back of each canvas. She uses music and dance to help her capture the energy around her so it can be fully expressed in her work. Learn more or view her work at
