María Camp primarily creates abstract acrylic paintings on hardboard or clayboard. She uses colors, shapes, and textures (including mediums and sgraffito techniques) to add impact and interest. She believes that creating, viewing, and contemplating art helps to celebrate, to explore, and to question the world around and within.
Maria's painting, "Butterfly Spring," was in the 2016 Alabama Spring Art Show at High Cotton Arts in Athens, Alabama. During that time, her recycled art sculpture, "Owl in Flight," was on display at Lowe Mill Arts Center in Huntsville, Alabama; it was entered in the September 2016 North Alabama State Fair and won third place in its category. Her painting entitled "Crazy Eyes" won a first place ribbon.
Maria's paintings have also been displayed at the Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts, the Tennessee Valley Art Museum, and the Killen Public Library.
Juried art shows include the Warrior Regional Library and Arts Center (Warrior, Alabama) in 2017 and Arts Alive (Florence, Alabama) in 2018.
Paintings are available at Art & More, a gallery in Florence, Alabama, as well as online. Art is sold as Happy Anvil Art and María Camp Fine Art.
María is a member of the Shoals Artists Guild, Huntsville Art League, and Arts Huntsville.
She was the featured presenter for the September 2017 meeting of the Shoals Artists Guild. She was one of the presenters for the March 2018 PechaKucha in Huntsville, Alabama.
