About the Artist

In the last year, I’ve been shooting documentary subjects in Ethiopia, Namibia, South Africa, Namibia and India for a project called Everyday Leadership. Interviewing global health leaders both in high level government offices and remote rural hospitals, the web series launches in November 2011. Locally, I just finished working on a script for the documentary, When Seattle Invented the Future; the Story of the 1962 World’s Fair produced by Hill Film and KCTS.  In the coming year, I’m scheduled to direct an independent feature, The Guest House, a suspense thriller to be shot in Los Angeles in 2012.

Maria also received a 1993 and 1995 Fellowship.
