Since childhood, my favorite subjects to paint have always been animals, birds and the magic of the natural world. I hope to inspire others through my art, to respect wildlife and nature and discover the wonderful world that Mother Nature provides. Being the featured artist for the National Aviary Wings & Wildlife Art Show 2017 is an honor, and dream come true as I celebrate 36 years in business!

The subject matter for my art varies, I use different mediums to create my art. I'm grateful to be earning a living thru my art, and thrilled to know others enjoy it!

MY MURALS on walls and canvas. All custom design and painted by me for my clients. I work closely with clients to create a unique space. Murals painted directly on walls are only available within 35 miles of downtown Pittsburgh. I also paint murals on canvas and ship to you for you to install easily with paste or have your local wallpaper hanger install for you.

MY PAINTINGS , Fine Art original paintings are created with professional grade artist acrylics on gallery wrapped stretched canvas, I also work with watercolors, pen and ink and various mediums.

Childhood dream of becoming an artist comes true!

Maria DeSimone Prascak is a self- taught artist best known for her custom murals and fine art in her home town of Pittsburgh, PA. Her art is described as enchanting, colorful, imaginative and aesthetically pleasing. Painting professionally since 1982 she’s had the opportunity to apply a variety of mediums such as acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, airbrushing and mixed media. Influenced by her client’s requests the subject matter varies from landscapes, imaginary, architectural to wildlife, nature and pets motivating her to learn different techniques for example, realistic, trompe loeil, impressionistic, imaginary, expressionistic, whimsical, and old world styles.
Over 450 feet of Maria’s murals can be seen throughout Sarris Candies in Canonsburg, PA. and multiple areas of The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, numerous local restaurants cafes, homes and businesses.
Maria’s art is sold online, at local art shows, sole exhibits and the gift shops at the National Aviary. She was the featured artist for the Aviary’s Wings & Wildlife Art Show 2017.
Featured on local tv, radio and a variety of publications her art is current often influenced by her life. She is active in local communities “giving back” aiming to inspire others through her work and teaching classes. Passionate about art since childhood as she wrote and illustrated her own books and created art, she was determined to become a full time artist. Maria is immersed in art and works closely with her client’s bringing their ideas to life.
