Ms. Arroyo has been creating since she was seventeen years old. She loves to draw what she sees and always knows exactly what image to work on. Her well developed sense of color and attention to detail makes her work very popular. Undaunted by complexity, Maria’s paintings of familiar Santa Barbara locations take on a life of their own. Being an artist is important to Maria. Her style is charming and fun.
“I feel good when I sell something I paint. I like to paint. I like to paint a kind of school. I can draw trees, houses, backyards and people. I like Art Studio because I’m happy, (it’s) fun and (I) work with nice people. I feel good about my art. I like a good time.”
