ARTIST & PRINTMAKER

Maria Pavledis is an artist and printmaker whose works with the dream like world  of fairy tale and narrative, including its darker and uncanny elements.  Starting from a very strong commitment to drawing, she develops  images using a mixture of traditional and non traditional methods, including etching which she uses to explore  new ways of mark making and expression.  She is interested in the qualities of fragility and destruction both in nature and in the printmaking process itself.  Other explorations of destruction in her work take place in the unique smoke drawings, which are made with fire and smoke. Recent work has also included moving light installation creating the sense of being inside a dramatic space. Maria originally studied painting studied at Norwich School of Art and  then continued to an  MA in printmaking  at Camberwell College of Art

Maria has exhibited widely, and is a member of London Organisation of Original Printmakers
