Maria is a baccalaureate degreed RN and a creative individual. She is happily married for "many moons" and enjoys having her husband as her best friend. She loves to inspire her family, friends and herself. As child Maria loved playing in the fields, meadows and woods, at the side of her paternal grandmother, Hilda, who owned a small farm in Tirol, Austria. All the photographs are sparks of Maria's inspiration. Her love of nature remains a steady source of joy.
