Maria Vanik

Born in 1970, Maria is a lifelong Chicagoan. With an extensive background experimenting in various fiber and sculpture techniques, she is actively building a focused creative practice at the studio.  Maria expands on references to found imagery and memories through the inclusion of patterns and strong colors. Making something bright and beautiful is at the top of her list!

“I like to make artwork. The colors are very very bright. I like to use markers to draw raindrops, a rainbow, a tree. Next time I will do it different. I like to start with a white blank background. I like to use bright colors with dark colors. I like to use a lot of them, and mix them together.”

Maria’s work has been included in Circle Contemporary group exhibitions, including Entrelazar and All Well and Good. She was also featured as the Chicago Studio’s Artist of the Month in July 2018.
