3 years ago she decided to venture into painting, with large format paintings that seek to explore abstraction through color, textures and shapes.
Her works show layers of paint that tell layers of life, personal moments of the artist are expressed with drawings, painting and collage creating a composition full of vitality.
Painting for María José is another means of expression opposed to her daily job, jewelry. Being this one of small scales, absolute perfection and made of metal.
The painting explores just the opposite, making it an energetic and liberating act.
Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries in Ecuador, Mexico and Panama.
