About Maria Kramer

I am an artist living and working in the great music city of New Orleans. I am part of an amazing group of artists whom display their art in historic Jackson Square. I have been a singer most of my life, but at this time, all I strive and want to do is create visual works. I came here a year after Katrina to help in the recovery efforts. I came by way of Seattle and my long term residency of San Francisco. I didn't plan to stay....but here I am. I used to sing in clubs in San Francisco with a jazz trio or quartet, received my Bachelor of Music, vocal performance from San Francisco State University. Over the years I have sung in obscure operas, in an eclectic circus, performed as a fire spinner and composed electronic music. Now I create music with brushes and paint. I long to find beauty around me, even when it is hard to find.

Pigeon and Yellow Wall

Pigeon-Yellow Wall

Pigeon and Yellow Wall

20"x 20" x 1.75 oil on gallery wrapped canvas. I wanted to share the beauty of pigeons. They are often disliked in cities because they nest where people don't want them. But this world isn't made just for us humans. I hope that by painting them, people may see them in a different light. Price includes shipping in the USA.
