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 wide range of requests, she's learned to be versatile, therefore the subject matter varies from landscapes, imaginary, architectural to wildlife, nature and pets and more 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,U.S. Federal Courthouse in Pittsburgh, a 30 ft rainforest mural at the National Aviary, PPG Paints Arena, 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. Inspired by her encounters with the SLOTHS at the Aviary, maria started selling her sloth art at local shows and online here, and in her other Etsy shop Marias Ideas Art. Locals starting referring to her as "The Sloth Lady".

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 writing and illustrating her own books and creating 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. She is grateful and humbled to serve others through her art. Making others happy is inspirational and motivates her to continue painting everyday.
