A Northern California native, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area with French and Chinese heritage, Maia has been surrounded by the arts her entire life. Her accomplished parents cultivated her musical education from a very early age, but ever since Maia discovered her love for visual art and painting at the age of 17, she has not been able to put down her paintbrush - and is now a full time artist and designer residing in Aptos, California. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio painting and minor in business from San Jose State University.
An avid athlete and visual artist, her work is a unique reflection of energy, action, and aesthetics. Her contemporary abstract landscapes are delicate and dreamy, evoking a visceral sense of inner connectivity and balance. Working with oil paints, her work captures the ethereal quality and fluidity
of the ocean itself, whether she is painting a surf scene, coastal landscape or abstract floral arrangement. Maia's paintings bring a distinctive style and elegance to homes and interior spaces - complementing any environment with her signature style and grace.
In addition to painting and selling her works of art, Maia also designs and distributes her own private line of art products, partnering with distributors in health markets, boutiques, and retail stores. She also works as a freelance graphic designer, focusing on logo design and branding. Her comprehensive understanding and experience of diverse customer needs in both fine art and retail, give her an invaluable knowledge base to deliver what's needed and wanted in any market.
Her work is exhibited throughout California at selected galleries and events. Maia's art is collected and commissioned
by art lovers and businesses worldwide.
