Maria’s whistle-stop biog: Maria’s long and varied educational and vocational history has taken on The Scenic Route through life,affording her a rare ‘generalist’ outlook, and aptitudes in a wide variety of fields. Her qualifications (so far), are in art, music and technology, yoga, sound healing, mental health (and Gaeilge is a daily work in progress). She has years of experience as a musician, artist and researcher as well as being a published writer. She has taught yoga, art, music and technology in a variety of settings. Work experience has come by way of community development and arts management and she volunteers as a positive-birth and mental health advocate. Her keenest interests currently lie in the space where the arts, health, science, psychology, creativity, play, yoga, neuroscience, sound and wellbeing meet. She lives in Donegal with her family.
