About Maria Kretova-Babich

The Wind blows where it wishes'
John 3:8


Art ennobles and decorates. Art paints life & helps to feel its real taste.
The main idea of my art is to make people happier, to fill their lives and homes with bright colors, joy and beauty.
Sometimes my artwork (especially if you read the title) can be a sending,a key, an answer you can get in a certain time of your life. Cause everything connects in the Universe. Sometimes I hide it. It's like a puzzle.You have to spend time finding .So much the more interesting. So you can derive not only aesthetic pleasure but to know something interesting.
Art chooses an Artist.
Artist is just a translator.
The process of creating is joining Something Great, Powerful and Miraculous. This is the Greatest Blessing for me to be a part of this Never-ending (I hope so)) process. That s why creating my artworks I have to listen and follow them.
Sometimes I use the verses from the Bible for my artworks. This is never ending source of Absolute Wisdom for Humans. I d like to share its Power with you) SHINE BRIGHT) GOD BLESS YOU))
The artworks are in private collections in Russia and abroad ( USA, Ireland, Belgium)
