MARIA ABEYESEKRE is  an award winning portrait artist, entirely self taught whose unique style is done by classical realism, specializes in acrylics, oils and pencils and she loves painting portraits of people, pets and wildlife. She is a full time artist who creates masterfully detailed artwork for over 2 decades.


Her art is held in private collections across the world and she donates a percentage from each sale of her work to a good cause she truly believes in.

She lives amongst the wilderness in the Central highlands of beautiful island, Sri lanka and says the serenity and the scenic beauty of where she is, makes the perfect environment for her to paint more.

"It is a hard and demanding discipline to succeed in realism into a painting. It needs devotion, patience and practice." - Maria Abeyesekere
