As a mother, she also loves to inspire families to come together through crafting with kids. A native of the Great Lakes State of Michigan, Maria graduated from Florida State University with a BA in theatre and moved to Los Angeles after completing her degree.

Maria is a lover of all things crafty and is obsessed with cooking and feeding those around her. She is self-taught--and mom-taught, taking inspiration from the most imaginative, organized, detail-oriented person she knows: her mom! Her hope is to inspire others to be hands-on in their own lives. Follow Maria on Instagram @fromscratchwithmaria.
