Meet The Artists


Maria Cristina Hornyan

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to pursue two of my lifelong passions; counseling children and creating art. One has influenced the other.
My experience as a therapist has been to help children and families heal by addressing challenges verbally. Since words may not completely reflect an inner voice, for me creating visual art gives expression to what is in the mind, heart and soul. In my artwork, I utilize colored pencil and other mixed media to depict detailed renderings of women, nature and architecture set in real and imaginary settings.
The influence… is a cherished lesson learned from working with children; embrace your inner child – laugh, play and COLOR every day.
