Mermaids, Angels and Godesses

I'd like to introduce you to my lovely, gifted and talented friend: Maria Cristina Guerriero

Maria is a self taught artist who views creativity as part of her spiritual path. Making art is a healing tool which grounds her, allowing her to process her emotions and do release work. She works with mixed media including tile mosaics, water colors, collage, ink drawings and acrylic paintings. Her pieces focus on vibrant color play with elements of nature and mystical images and symbols. 

She is inspired by folk, visionary and street art. She believes that she is being guided to share her art and help others to imagine higher possibilities and to connect with the divine.

Maria also uses art therapeutically in her work as a psychiatric nurse with both clients and student nurses. This is usually coupled with a guided meditation and then a free form artistic expression that is shared in a group. She is an advanced practice nurse who teaches complementary and alternative medicine and mental health at the University of Hawaii.

Always a free spirit, she left New Jersey at age 22 to travel to over 40 countries to experience culture, music, self-realization and adventure. Her journeys exposed her to various art styles and alternative beliefs and perspectives that influence her work. She was blessed to come and live on the island of Oahu, Hawaii in 2001 as a travel nurse. Here her connection to nature and the ocean has helped her to find balance, open her heart and cultivate a beautiful relationship with spirit. Creating her art is a meditative process and comes intuitively and easily.
