Her name is Maria Schwede, a local Artist here in Cairns. The blessing of art is important to the world and we wish to showcase this wonderfully talented artist. Maria's artwork reaches beyond the boundaries of common realism into a realm of heightened beauty. The talent of her brushwork is expressive and deep. Her ability to capture moments in time and accentuate the smallest details is awe-inspiring...

Maria's journey began in Germany. At a young age, she always had talent with the brush and pen. In her youth, she also won countless prizes with her skills. Her name spread through her home town, not only was she using her skills in competitions but she also took requests from her teachers and classmates in school, drawing for them and teaching her classmates the art of sketching and brushwork. In recognition for her talents home town dedicated a section in the newspaper just for Maria, praising her.

After she graduated from school Maria took a shining in interior design. Her ability to draw a perfect representation of what the client envisioned on the spot strengthened Maria's public image. After receiving so much praise for her artistic talents she pursued that life of painting, to share her painted visions with the world.

Painting Paradise

Maria ventured to Australia, seeking adventure and inspiration. To find her paradise. She discovered this in Cairns QLD, here Maria found her muse in the form of Australian wildlife and nature. The discovery filled her will passion and she projected this onto her most famous and cherished art piece "Paradise".

This sanctuary is emasculate and captivating, it's a perfect scene depicting her Paradise; a place to recharge and find inner peace. To Maria, it was her exotic retreat, her happy place. This painting holds the intention to ignite the viewer's sanctuary, to inspire them and provide ideas in creating their paradise. This piece gained Maria a lot of attention, so she decided to share more depictions of nature and wildlife with the world.

Her ability to capture moments in time and emphasize their beauty is awe-inspiring. It's one thing to take a photo and amplify its quality but to hand paint such flawless pieces from her minds-eye is incredible.
