Maris started experimenting and dabbling in watercolours around 1999/2000. She soon began her instruction in art under Harry Alden and furthered her art education under Anton Calleja.... two well established artists in Malta. Since then, she has painted everything from Landscapes and Seascapes to Portraits, Still Life and live sessions. She has had two solo exhibitions and has taken part in numerous collective exhibitions within the Maltese islands.
In 2014, Maris has participated in another collective exhibition, this time in the UK with the help of Kingston Arts. Currently, Maris is developing her skills with other Maltese artists in painting the human figure.
Maris was presented twice with a Special Mention Award at the Museum of Fine Arts for her contributions, once for an oil painting, a still life, and on another occasion with a watercolour portrait entitled Ir-Ruxxan (The Rugged man).
