My name is Maria Etheridge and I used to sign my work under my maiden name of  Volschenk. However, I found people had difficulty with that name and it was easier to understand a straightforward Etheridge. I now sign my work with a type of symbol, incorporating 



My work brings me joy and, in my opinion, it is the most important aspect of making art. If one makes art for any other reason, often joy gets left behind. When I paint, time becomes immaterial as I enter that state of being where the mind becomes tranquil and all else fades into the background. It's bliss.



I have worked in a variety of mediums all the way from graphite, watercolour, pastel, acrylic to oils. These days I am concentrating on Impressionism in oils and I am pretty excited about the process! 


I have no formal education in art although I have taken several courses over the years, the longest lasting three years with Elli Lestas here in Cyprus. Oh, yes, that's where I live.


I am a dedicated meditator and subscribe to the sevel levels of wisdom, seven levels of spirituality and last but not least, the seven energy centres in the body.


It is my pleasure to introduce you to some of my work. If you would like to know more about my art and me, please fill in your name and email address right here:
