Maria Sarmiento is a passionate, versatile, and highly motivated artist and educator with extensive experience teaching sculpture in Fine Arts and Art Foundations in design universities. A native of Colombia and resident of Atlanta, Georgia, Maria’s work is inspired by nature and ancient cultures (pre-historic and pre-Colombian), and evokes spirituality as well as a sense of transcendence.
Maria describes her work as a medium to express inner spiritual growth. She connects with common symbols of cultures and explores emerging forms in diverse materials, and transforms traditional symbols into her own. Her sculptural art includes different methods such as cast metals, cement, Paltiya, steel, paper, and recycled materials. Maria’s background includes broad knowledge and expertise in artistic glass, from stained, to cast, fused and now Mosaic.
Maria’s currently teaches art workshops and her past teaching assignments include Kennesaw State University, Georgia State University, The Art Institute of Atlanta, Metro Academic Studies, and Sarmineto Studio LLC.
