1988 Avilés (Asturias-Spain)

My name is María Gallardo, but my artistic name is María Hormiga.

Why this name? 

All people around me always say that I work a lot, without any break, and many of them refer to me as a little ant, so I though it was a good idea to use this concept as my brand.


I´m interested in nature, the world of flowers, botanical illustration and human beauty. I focus my passion on the harmonies and the details, allways with a strong feeling for colors and composition.

Watercolors, pencils, brushes and papers surround me...I think I couldn't survive without this wonders.

They bring me the sense of living.

I want you to feel the same pleasure and enjoy together!
