profile picture mariaI’m a research student in the Web Science Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Southampton.

Art is something I like to do in my spare time. This particular website is intended as a portfolio of my creations. Most of them emerge out of some process of procrastination or therapeutic meditation. Usually it brings a surreal or abstract flavour, but I also enjoy realism occasionally. I’m happy when people see something that resonates or moves them.
