Mariana Ariza is a Sydney artist. She focuses on portraiture and takes inspiration from many sources and styles, but has great admiration for the great portrait masters of the late 19th and 20th century such as Sargent, Zorn, Sorolla and the early impressionists.
She is intrigued by the possibilities of painting the human face and the beauty of capturing the character and soul of her subject somewhere between the canvas and the brush.
She also loves landscapes and is inspired by the perfect design and harmony of nature, striving to depict the atmospheric quality of light.
Having won several prizes at different art shows, she continues to pursue studies in fine arts.
Mariana is available for portrait commissions. Contacts us to enquire about portrait commissions
