Hi there, and welcome to my gallery! I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator. I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and have been doing art professionally for about 15 years. My work is mostly traditional portraiture with fantasy elements. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, our two young sons, a trusty feline sidekick, and more books and movies than we have room for. I love to write, take photos, cook, ride horses, and play a delicious profusion of violent videogames. If you want to know more, please visit my site at www.mariawilliam.net.
Thanks for looking, and alons-y!
