Maria Jose Nunez Bonequi
Maria is a Sessions College of Art and Design graduate who enjoys painting simple moments that life offers like the sun's rays going through the foliage in the early morning or little droplets of dew in the grass. She enjoys painting anything related to nature or with a nostalgic feeling since she finds a lot of inspiration in nostalgia.

Maria was born in Mexico City and lived there most of her life, she then moved to Argentina for a few years and recently moved to the US. Her art is highly inspired by Mexican Prehispanic Cultures like the Aztecs and Mayans. She has four beautiful cats who accompany her during her creative process so don't be scared to ask her for pictures of them!

Maria Jose Nunez Bonequi is available for private bookings

Available most Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9 am-1 pm (Private tutoring, portraits, and events!),

Raleigh Watercolor Group
Title or Location: The Valley Beyond
I almost threw this away. Sometimes I have a hard time "pushing through" a painting that I am doing. I'm tempted to stop and say "this is not good, I won't finish it, it's awful". I painted the sky background a year ago and the painting just sat in a corner. One day I decided to just "play" with this piece of paper and I loved what happened! Quite often I find that I need to let my artwork just cook in a corner. Every once in a while I surprise myself!

Raleigh Watercolor Group
Title or Location: Lone Oak
After I had joint replacement surgery on my left thumb, my dominant hand, I still wanted to paint. I thought that I'd just play with color using my right hand to wield the brush. To my amazement, I painted with more spontaneity and with a looseness I've been trying to achieve before. Maybe I'm ambidextrous and have only just discovered it (I'm 76).

I use my small watercolor kit to document the places I experience while traveling and working on tje road. I was able to spend most of the winter in Arizona, spending time in the unique Sonoran desert. Where each saguaro cacti has its own personality within the Sonoran's surreal landscape.

Title or Location: Twilight in Penarth
I used to live in Penarth, and find it an interesting town by the sea, with lovely shopping, eclectic coffee shops, parks, and of course the wonderful pier. I am also fascinated by the wonderful lamps in Britain and beyond, their history and intricate designs. Hence this lovely lamp, taken from its neighbours, to stand proud and alone, but with the outline of the pier behind to illustrate its context of Penarth.

Title or Location: Hummingbird on Bleeding Hearts
I painted this hummingbird for my mother for Mother's Day at my apartment in Redding California. I love how the hummingbird looks up in a searching hopeful way towards the bleeding hearts.
