Born in Boston in 1975 and raised in a small coastal Maine town, Maya Kuvaja earned a degree from Maine College of Art and later moved to rural western Maine where she now creates mixed media paintings in her studio in the woods. Maya’s paintings combine images from nature, science, religion and industry using a unique mixed media process that blends drawing, image transfer and oil painting. Her work explores memory, perception and human interaction with nature. Maya is a recent Maine Arts Commission Grant recipient and frequently exhibits her work in New England. Her paintings are a part of many private collections.
