From a very early age, I’ve been captivated by the heart symbol. Whether it was in jewelry, furniture, clothing, or vases, anything shaped like a heart would catch my eye. I collected them with passion, giving each piece a special place in my world. Little did I know that my love for hearts and my passion for painting would lead me on an extraordinary journey: the creation of “Hearts by Maria Henderson.”
Originally from Natal, Brazil, my life took a special turn when I moved to the United States in 2003. Since then, I’ve become a renowned professional photographer, capturing precious moments through my camera lens. Yet, painting has always been my secret passion—a way to express the love and emotions that overflow from my heart.
My artistic journey is also a quest to understand the complexity of human psychology. I’m dedicating my time to the study of psychology, seeking ways to touch people’s hearts even more deeply.
In 2022, after nearly two decades in sunny Florida, my family and I embarked on an exciting change as we moved to Texas. Now, in my new home, I continue my mission to share my love for hearts with the world, one brushstroke of color and emotion at a time.
In my paintings, I aim to capture the essence of love represented by the heart symbol. I hope that as you gaze upon my art, you feel the same joy and emotion that I pour into each piece. It is my most sincere hope that my art resonates with you and brings the beauty of love to your heart and home.
