East Stroudsburg UniversityMaria Talasz operates as an independent artist from the Equilux studio in Eagle River, Alaska. Her work often goes beyond two dimensions, is free from the confines of any frame, and includes movement through careful design and assembly. Her favorite medium is wood, painted in gouache and oil paints, with nearly all subjects coming directly from nature.

Originally from the Netherlands, she has lived in Alaska since 2001. Maria draws inspiration from traveling with her daughter, the beautiful scenery and wildlife around her home in the mountains where she lives with her husband and two cats. Horses have played an important role in her life from a very early age and continue to be a big part of her work today.
