Maria was born in London of Irish and Italian parents. In 1994, she came to West Cork and began renovating an old farmhouse in an idyllic setting, where she lives with her husband and four children.

She works with a wide variety of fabrics and organic materials to produce exotic figures and marionettes, each of which is unique. Her work reflects both the mythical dimensions of her imagination and the rich earthiness of her environment.

Visitors welcome by appointment.
