You Belong Bench Artist

Maya Corona

In January 2019 Maya Corona left her 17-year career in design and embarked fulltime on a career in painting and inspiring others to use creativity as a wellness practice through workshops and classes.  Her watercolour and acrylic work is colourful, whimsical and full of motion and life.

“Beauty inspires me, colour excites me and I love transmitting that to all those around me,” she says.

Maya is working with SpanicArts on her You Belong Art Bench.

Maya was paid a fair artist’s fee for her work on this project. And, if you particularly love her bench, we invite you to send her a tip too!
