Maya Sozer is a Turkish-American abstract painter based in Asheville, North Carolina. Captivated by the beauty of nature, she uses natural materials along with acrylic inks and watercolors to create unique textures and marks that echo the organic movements of the natural world. Maya documents and shares her artistic journey on her Instagram and YouTube channel, where millions of viewers engage with her work, thus bridging the gap between nature and art and impacting cultural perceptions.


With a background in visual arts from the Art Institute in Sunnyvale, California, Maya initially ventured into editorial illustration and photography. However, her enduring passion for painting led her to focus on abstract art. Her profound love for the outdoors deeply influences her artistic process. By immersing herself in natural environments, Maya allows the essence and spirit of nature to guide her creations. Through her art, she strives to foster a deeper connection with oneself and the surrounding world.
