Maria Moldovan was born in Romania. She started her visual education in the High School of Arts, Sf. Gheorghe, her hometown, in a class specialized in painting. After 4 years of painting she has chosen to study ceramic art at the University of Arts and Design in Cluj Napoca. She made this decision because she was attracted by three-dimensional art but she couldn't give up the colors. So it seemed to be the perfect solution to have sculpture and painting at the same time.
Painting and ceramic art fluctuates through her life since then. There are longer periods of time dedicated for painting and than for ceramic art.
Starting from 2008 she is involved in projects related to children's illustration as well. There are five books so far published with her illustrations.
Maria moved with her family in Canada in 2013.
