Maria Pavledis

Maria Pavledis is an artist and printmaker, who works with the dreamlike 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, drypoint, monoprint and smoke drawing; which she uses to explore new ways of mark making and expression. Maria is interested in the qualities of fragility and destruction, both in nature and in the printmaking process itself. Recent work has also included moving light installation, using old analogue equipment, creating the sense of being inside a story space.

Maria originally studied painting at Norwich School of Art and then continued to an MA in printmaking at Camberwell College of Art. She has exhibited widely and is a member of the London Organisation of Original Printmakers and Print to The People in Norwich. She lives in North Norfolk.
