STORIES

Welcome to my journal. My story in colour and pattern. My name is Maria Hatling and I am a Norwegian London based artist and designer. I’ve been searching for a place to share the stories behind my work and have decided that this journal is where they belong. Looking for my portfolio you can find it here or visit my shop here

On this journal I share the stories behind my work on paper, textiles and canvas and let you in on the creative process from primary research to finished artwork. My colour stories share the process of challenging my own colour taste and expanding my view on colour combinations through my work. These colour stories will evolve, over time I will test the palettes I am instinctively drawn to photographing and show you the experimentation and end result.
