Maril贸 Carral

Anyone and everyone on vacation in my favorite village in the world聽San Miguel de Allende聽is faced with a sumptuous plethora of Mexican crafts, furniture, sculpture, and fine art. In fact there are shopping centers of fine artists! But one and only one atelier stood out in my mind and that was聽Maril贸 Carral鈥檚 as she has her own unique way of painting. While she paints florals and landscapes like no one else, she, in my mind, is a fauvist. I mean that her paintings are more about her love of colour than flowers!聽 It was back in 2005 we first met Maril贸 and Dennis.聽 Her paintings swept us off our feet and since then we have become friends.聽 She inspires my own paintings tremendously.

Maril贸 Carral started painting at 4 and hasn鈥檛 stopped since, so naturally she is now a master. She also dived into other mediums - furniture design, mosaic, jewellery and her latest love, miniature antique religious statues. Inspired by original pieces inherited from her grandmother, Maril贸 Carral has created a series of these miniature wonders, creating her own wonderland of intricate tabernacles and miniature altars, made with pieces she scavenged for across Europe, the United States and Mexico. A delight!
