Growing up in Iowa, surrounded by a family who concentrated on pursuing careers in medicine, it is surprising Maria Wolpert grew up to become interested in traditional and digital art. Influenced by her mom’s love for the Peanuts characters from a young age, the first things Maria loved to draw were Charlie Brown and his beloved dog, Snoopy.
Soon after starting high school, Maria started focusing more on painting and photography than drawing. Painting everything from landscapes to portraits, her interests continued to grow with her education.
Finally deciding to pursue a career in graphic design, and still painting and drawing on the side, Maria moved to Omaha in 2013. She is working toward her bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Creative Center.
