Maria Uhase is an oil painter and illustrator living and working in Northeast Ohio.

She completed a BA Studio Emphasis with a Minor in Painting and a Minor in Drawing from the Myers School of Art at the University of Akron (OH) in 2019. She creates surreal narratives involving combinations of plants, animals, and objects in the natural world. Much of the inspiration for her art comes from her daily experiences of the nature surrounding her home in the woods, traveling often to explore new environments, interests in various sciences, and learning from the people she knows and meets. She hopes to encourage people to form connections with each other founded in genuine altruism, empathy, and acceptance as they produce individual narratives in relation to her work and as they discover the commonalities between them.
