This can be seen in her original use of unusual tones full of light and movement. Her high school studies in classics led to a deeper interest in literature, travelling, reading and natural hygiene way of life.
She has a natural curiosity about the world around her, as shown by the wide range of subjects she portrays in her work.
Her greatest inspiration comes from nature and she often travels far away from home in search of fresh images.
In her paintings the joyful colors of spring and summer and the delicate shades of winter play with the essential forms of her subjects (primarily flowers, landscapes and animals).
Her work is influenced by Expressionism, whose powerful colors and forceful imagery she shares.
She works mainly in watercolors, which best renders the spontaneity, freshness and vivacity, as well as the simplicity , of her personality and thus of her paintings.
Her colors, always intense and joyful, combine successfully with the transparency and fluidity of a medium considered by many to be among the most difficult to master.
Her watercolors have been exhibited in a number of cultural centres in Rome and a selection of her work has been chosen by an important Milanese Company to be printed and distributed all over the world.
Maria Grazia lives and works with tireless enthusiasm in Rome
