A little while ago I wanted to create a piece for my portfolio that I could also exhibit at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live at Kansas City. The piece was inspired by the feeling I had while snorkelling with a pelagic manta ray off the coast of Hawaii a little over a year ago – peace, adoration and wonder.

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.
