Maria Sainz Monasterio is a figurative artist who works with drawing, printmaking and painting. Her work is subtle and affecting, exploring and incorporating both religious and gothic iconography. Maria’s work feels hazy; sombre in suggested tone but uplifting in appearance due to her use of soft colours and faded imagery.

Maria graduated with a MA Fine Art 2023. She continues to live and work in Edinburgh. We featured her work in our annual highlight Best Of Scottish Art Schools Grad Show 2023.
