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.
Maia moved to Santa Cruz at the age of 17, where she discovered her love for painting and surfing. Since then she has not been able to put down her paintbrush.
Her artwork carries a passion for the beauty of the ocean, action sports, and the quintessential California lifestyle.
Working with oil paints, her work capture the ethereal quality and fluidity of the ocean itself, whether she is painting a surf scene, coastal landscape or a vineyard sunset. An avid athlete and visual artist, her work is a unique reflection of energy, action and aesthetics.
Maia's work is exhibited at selected galleries, and public and private events. She holds a Bachelor or Fine Arts in Studio Painting and a minor in business from San Jose State University.
Her art is collected and commissioned by art lovers and businesses worldwide.
When she's not painting and running her art business, you can find her on the tennis court, or surfing in the sea.
Are you looking for a special piece of original art for an area or wall in your home? Do you have a specific vision or scene you'd like painted?
