Heath Village is very excited to introduce its new Artist-in-Residence Maria Moch.
Formerly of Tewksbury, Moch and her husband moved to Heath Village in 2015. Maria’s love affair with painting began in grade school and has continued throughout her life. Her early work was done using primarily oil paints and later on she expanded to watercolor.
Prior to moving to Heath Village, Moch was a member of several art associations, including the Hunterdon Water Color Society through which she held many exhibits. She has won State Gold and first place awards in the NJ State Federation of Women’s Club of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Additionally, her work has also been featured in art shows in New York and Pennsylvania.
In her painting, she likes to feature landscapes and close ups of flowers. Moch and Dan have traveled extensively throughout the United States as well as Canada. It is through their travels and the beautiful photographs of nature taken mostly by her husband, that Moch finds the inspiration for many of her paintings.
While painting has always been a hobby, over the years, Moch has enjoyed offering workshops and teaching watercolor painting classes for both children and adults.
