My name is Maya and I grew up in Texas. I studied art in undergrad at Tulane University, graduating with degrees in Cell and Molecular Biology and Studio Art with a focus in Painting and Photography. After I graduated, I attended Johns Hopkins University and completed a Master of Arts in Medical Illustration. It was there that I developed my love of the human form and wanted to study more of it. I applied to medical school and finally attended the Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv, Israel.
I still continue to paint everyday and sketch and paint my thoughts and visions whenever they need a form on paper. Even though I don't get much time as a doctor, I am able to be closest to my thoughts when i am sitting across from the canvas with a paintbrush in my left hand and the colors in my right. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy creating these paintings.
