Welcome! My name is Maria Hargis. I am a self-taught artist and illustrator located in Richmond, Virginia.

I do not have an art degree. I am truly a talent artist for everything I have learn is on my own.


What I do?

I am a traditional artist that use acrylic, watercolor, and ink as my media. I have over 25 work of art in acrylic alone for acrylic is my first go to media. I use watercolor more often when I am working on illustrator projects. I used graphic design software to transfer my work to digital for prints and other product.

In October 2019, I will be releasing my first comic book that I wrote and illustrated. I will be working on more book projects  in the future.

I also maintain an online store that figure many of my own design made to reach more people who normally does not buy work of art on a regular base. I want for more than art collection to enjoy my art.
