Maribel Matthews bio
Maribel has come a long way and both local and international press have recognised her work and achievements as an artist. Among artists she is well known for the masterful technique in her artwork.
Her painting ‘Trees in the Mist’ was highly commended at the Gibraltar International Exhibition 2005.
In 2007 the Alwani Foundation awarded Maribel the prize for her painting of ‘Casemates’.
“Perhaps one day it will dawn on mankind that squandering our resources is not the answer and instead work in harmony with nature appreciating the beauty and grandeur of our world by caring for it as it should.”
“For me, painting is a necessity and has become my passion. I love starting a new piece – the anticipation and excitement of creating something new, something from the soul, a piece of art that may give pleasure to others but more importantly, fulfills me.”
