“I try to create images and narratives that inspire people. Sometimes these are messages of hope and sometimes they are simply reflections of ideas or themes that resonate with my own personal experiences. Whether it’s a painting, an image for a children’s book or a gift product, I always try to infuse my artwork with the sense of playfulness and curiosity I feel when I create”. — Maria Carluccio
