Working from her Dartmoor studio, she makes drawings and paintings that respond directly to the landscape, capturing the raw, high energy beauty of coast and moorland through the instinctive placement of abstract shapes and expressive marks.

Landscape artist Maria Floyd studied at both Goldsmiths College London and the Chelsea College of Art and Design. She lives and works in both Cornwall and Devon, using her extraordinary skill with mark, colour and composition to make ‘plein air’ paintings and drawings that capture the raw, high energy beauty of coast and moorland. Her work is for collectors who appreciate the spectacular beauty of Cornwall in all weathers, from the soft lull of springtime, to the violent sweep of winter skies, beating down upon a bleak and beautiful ocean.
