Hello! I'm Maya, a creative alchemist living and constructing mystical art in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Alchemy is the ancient art of transmuting energy and matter. Through the alchemical process, I activate and arrange objects to create doorways and magical possibilities in the viewer. Using a mixed media approach, I paint, mold, glue, scavenge and collect items arranging them into new possibilities. I studied design and belong to an artistic family. I am also an explorer of shamanic paths, certified in hypnotherapy, a student of the law of attraction and a global adventurer who spends up to a month each year traveling solo or occasionally accompanied by friends in order to fill my well with creative inspiration to draw from. I am delighted to join Artistic Portland's community of artists!
