Mariah Mae Loitz
Hello Beautiful People! My name is Mariah Loitz. I come from a small town in MN, growing up with my little brother, my wonderful parents and of course my dogs. My son is my sunshine in life and never stops amazing me or growing. When my mom first asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, it's funny that I replied "an artist." Art has been my passion since I was a young girl and while in college for Business Administration, I realized that I was ready to pursue my dream career as an Artist. Graduating with my Associaties in Fine Arts (AFA) was so rewarding in the knowledge, as well as the lifetime friends and mentors. I have enjoyed various mediums both 2-D and 3-D, although my favorites are Photography, Painting and Drawing. Since graduating college I worked full-time as a Photographer for Clix Portrait Studios for over a year. I remain contracting, although needed the flexibility to pursue my own work and grow as an artist. Traveling is my next adventure in life with my art and family. I love learning, meeting new people and new adventures.
“They Call the Wind Mariah” is a song that entails meaning to me, other than my name. Wind travels free and constantly changes. Likewise I live a busy lifestyle as a single mom, working and pursuing my passion as an Artist. I am from a small town in Minnesota and growing up in the country, I love being outdoors. I am a 2-Dimensional artist who loves: Painting, Drawing, Photography and Design. Art inspires me having virtually no limits. I am a dreamer with a vivid imagination and my free spirit travels within my artwork. My journey in life is my influence; that strongly includes my passion for music and dance. The materials and processes may change in my projects; however they are linked by the recurring formal problems and subject matter. I visually enjoy using contrast, like the concept of ying and yang. Rainbow is often my color choice especially with the contrast of black and white. The subject matter varies from realism to surrealism including: decisive moments, sceneries, abstracts, fairytales, portraits and symbols. Tattoos fascinate me and have recently made an appearance in my photography; one that I may persevere. The wind within my artwork is like a song that is unique to every ear.
