Maria Coryell-Martin

About Maria:

Maria Coryell-Martin is an expeditionary artist following the tradition of traveling artists as naturalists and educators. She graduated from Carleton College in 2004 and received a Thomas J. Watson fellowship to explore remote regions through art from 2004-2005. Since then, Maria has worked with scientists and expeditions in the Pacific NW, Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and the Antarctic Peninsula. In the field, Coryell-Martin sketches with ink and watercolor, and collects multimedia recordings to build her palette of place, a record of experience, climate, and color. This work is the basis for exhibits of large-scale studio and field paintings, as well as multimedia presentations and hands-on workshops to promote observation, scientific inquiry, and environmental awareness. Learn more: expeditionaryart.com
