About the Artist, Maria Gropp

A New Mexican native, Maria Gropp was born in Sapello, NM, where she lived until she was six years old.  It was then that her father moved the family to Denver, CO, so his kids could receive a better education.

Maria discovered her natural talent for visual art after winning a drawing contest in the second grade at Lucy Auld Elementary in Denver and has gone on to attend art classes in color media at Metropolitan State University in Denver and the Colorado Institute of Art in Colorado Springs, CO.

Maria's favorite media is acrylic, but her work includes pieces in colored chalk and pencil as well as pen and ink.  She specializes in paintings of wildlife, scenery, Native American subjects and has done some abstract work by request.  Her drive to continually improve has led to using inanimate objects in her work.

Her goal is to make visual art that fits a person's personality and, at the same time, provides warmth to that individual's home.
