Maria started her artistic path with the violin at the age of 6 in Estonia. Her passion for classical music brought prizes at international competitions and opportunities of making music in various collaborations. At 17, she moved to Austria and pursued her violin studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. A few years after that, she felt the need to learn more about the world of creative arts and applied for Vienna's English Theatre Academy. This turned out as one of the most fulfilling opportunities yet, which enabled her to view music and self-expression in a new light.
During the time at drama school, she discovered her love for composing music by writing for theatre and short films. Maria graduated from Vienna’s English Theatre Academy in 2020 and from London’s Rose Bruford College in 2022 with Distinction. Blending her experience in music with an actor's imagination has opened up many new doors for her both as an artist and person.
