Last spring I got a chance to work on a personal project. The concept of time and urgency was paramount, so I decided on a concept of three girls going on an adventure to retrieve a magical hourglass and return it to Sandman, its rightful owner.

I wanted to tap into the timelessness of Peter Pan and it wasn’t until I showed it to an audience that I saw the parallels to Harry Potter. I love that the themes of survival, time, and strength run through all of those works.

For your viewing pleasure, here are “Escape from the Hornet’s Nest” and “Who’s This?” from the “Lost Time” series.

Mariya has the exceptional ability to make fantasy more vivid and vibrant. I love the subtle texture and the outrageous detail and realism, as well as the simplicity of it. _________ The illustrations in Little Moss, Big Tree are outstanding. Light pastel watercolors fill the page and invite the reader to escape and all the trees, snail, animals, and leaves are illustrated accurately with soft hues of color. __________ You taught me what was possible and expected when working with other artists.You were so patient with me while working through an unfamiliar etiquette. It was a real kindness.
