I was born in London, England but now live in Mid Wales.

I love art and design, painting and photography (amongst other things). I graduated from University after studying for a BA (Hons) in Illustration and I’m currently working as a Freelance Illustrator.

Most of my inspiration stems from nature. I am particularly interested in textures and trying out new techniques. I enjoy photography but find I never have enough time to really pursue my interests and love of life. I see beauty in the smallest things, frosted cobwebs, autumn leaves and even tiny snails.

Almost there!

Four year’s of study almost complete. I cannot believe it has taken over my life so much, but it has been worth it. Hopefully, now I can get back in the saddle and start promoting some of my artwork. I’ve got a new blog that I tend to post most of my comments on which can be accessed via my website www.mariaforrester.co.uk. Please stop by and have a look.
