Victoria with the title.
In Middle Eastern lore, Marida is the plural name of the wish granting and wise djinn.
The inspiration of these shapes in my artwork comes from my love of Moorish archways and the genie bottle shaped, blown glass and gilded holiday ornaments that belonged to my grandmother.
There are so many exotic design styles from antiquity that speak to me far more than the current trends in art jewelry and commercial design. Never one to merely imitate the past, I meld the feeling of my favorite design styles from history while always striving to speak these lines and curves in my own voice. My artwork lies at the intersection of others' past and my present.
