Maria Ojeda is a painter turned sculptor (and amateur everything else). She grew up all over the state of Florida. Much of her own history is categorized into mundane landmarks where life passed by in transience. Gas stations were familiar as a family meeting place, and as she traversed the same roads, power lines became old friends flickering into familiarity. This sense of memory and place informing one another has been woven into her artwork along with bits of cloth, hair, and dust bunnies.
Maria received her BFA at Florida State University and is currently creating and studying towards her MFA at Georgia State University.
