Maria was born of a marriage between an English lawyer and an American designer. Her parents were everything a girl could ask for until they decided to go through a divorce which ended with Maria's mother going back to the states with twelve year old Maria in tow. Living arrangements were made, with her mother for the entire year and summer with papa at Oxford or sometimes traveling to exotic places, simply real adventures that mum wouldn't have time for. At age eighteen, she enrolled into Washington University and three years after obtained her degree in Childhood and Family studies. A fresh graduate, she was happy just living her life to the fullest with a part time job at a daycare until her mum dropped the bomb of her marrying her longtime boyfriend. That was the last straw, Maria didn't even bother to wait until the wedding, she just packed her things and flew off to Australia. She quickly fit in, loving the country already since she had been there before with her papa during their yearly trip. Getting a job was the last thing in her mind, she was practically as rich as a trust fund baby but Maria needed to fill her time, that's how she ended selling flowers at the paddy's market every weekend and on weekdays volunteering at the Westmead Children's hospital where she first met her Asriel. Yes, she is quite possessive especially when it comes to her English boyfriend Asriel. He owns an Arts Cafe at the street she lives in and is a volunteer at the hospital just like Maria, he brings in cupcakes from his cafe for the children and has story time where Maria usually ends being the damsel in distress.

- LOVE -
Asriel Devonshire; 32
the guy who stole maria's heart - whether it was his contagious giggles or in her words extremely gorgeous face, Maria fell hard for her Asriel. Yes, she is quite possesive of him and he doesn't mind, in fact indulges her to it so don't be surprise to see them being all ridiculously lovey dovey that it makes you want to barf. Onwards, Asriel's an English guy who owns an Arts Cafe at the street where they both live in. Cafe is basically connected to an art gallery which also conducts art classes that he teaches himself on saturdays as well as an art supply shop. Asriel's a fighter as far as Maria knows for almost a year of being with him, she knows of his rough childhood because of his Kidney problems but other than that he's a positive guy with a heart of gold and buckets of sunshine in him. He's a sweetheart which isn't a surprise but seriously his stare melts Maria, she questions how she's still standing these days.

- FAMILY -
Matthew Clarke; 52
Quite possibly the awesomest father in the entire world but you know maybe its a bit bias but every girl thinks that way of their father. Matthew is a famous English Lawyer to everyone but papa to his only child. Despite only seeing each other during the summer, Maria shares a close bond with her papa, enjoying their yearly trips and surprise birthday presents which always held so much meaning to her. His only flaw would probably be the fact that he's bisexual but Maria doesn't mind plus she quite likes the men papa shags.

Lorraine Wood; 45
The American designer who fell for an awesome English guy, Lorraine is stubborn and doting yet always has little time for her daughter. Their relationship has always been on the weird side, Maria doesn't approve most of Lorraine's choice in everything and dislikes her more when she announced her decision to marry her long time politician boyfriend. Yet these two love each other in ways that only they know.

- WEEKLY DOSE -
weekdays: listening to kids talk. no kid.
Maria volunteers at the westmead children's hospital during the weekdays, spending her time around little children and almost the whole day restraining herself from melting into puddles because of their cute voices and mostly adorable little faces that at the same time breaks her heart when she remembers how ill some of them are. She's been through thick and thin with some of them but all have their own dear place in her heart.
weekends: flower gleam and glow make the power shine... okay no she doesn't turn into rapunzel every weekends.
now if you miss her so much and in desperate need of awesome flower arrangements, you can find her at the paddy's weekend market at her stall. She's not always there though, she obviously has a life and a boyfriend to spent time with so make sure to check her twitter and instagram for updates!
- HEAVEN ON EARTH -
you know before getting the real valhalla, Maria thought why not get one of her own on earth. Her top floor apartment in Crown Street is exactly how you can get to know her, every inch screams of Maria and the love she has for her career. Its mostly in white with healthy splash of colours in it, she didn't want her home to look like as if the colour god just vomit in it. It has an attic of some sort which she turned into her bedroom, the ceiling is entirely one sided glass for her to marvel over the night skies.
