My name is Maria Giri Pratiwi ( MariaTiwi). I was born in Boyolali, Indonesia March 13 in 1966. I am currently teaching in an art highschool and also in an art tuition called Hadiprana Art Class. I am active in a community artist in Jakarta. I frequently showcase my paintings in a few exhibition. Most of my paintings are figurines of different shapes women. In my opinion, women are strong, independent, have endless love in their hearts and that is where my painting inspirations come from. My goal is to have my paintings to be sold around the world and inspire different types of people.
