Maria Rado is a fine artist based in London. Her artwork explores minimalist abstract approaches to evoke a specific feeling, sense of place or mood. Her artistic exploration spans various themes including nature, particularly botanical forms, the mathematical beauty inherent in natural structures, and the ethereal allure of underwater environments. These themes are reflected in her ongoing series of artworks. Maria's studio is located in South London's Beckenham Place Mansion, and she welcomes visits by appointment.
