Edie has recently featured on the cover of Elizabeth Parker's debut poetry collection, In Her Shambles. Intensely visual, often revelling in natural imagery with strains of the surreal, Parker's radiant poems sit beautifully, bound beneath Maria's characteristic collage.
Real Homes - the glossy go-to for desirable decor - featured Maria's (sold out) print Edie on the cover of their October 2017 edition. Set into plush surroundings - inky blue walls, exposed herringbone floors, and delicate chandeliers - the playful pin-up looked right at home... The fabulous interior is by Cheshire Interior Design.
