3 Marias pays homage to:
+ my given name: Maria Margarita Liñeiro
+ to Mary, mother of Jesus, who models willingness and openness to Mystery, and
+ to all those who open themselves to the truth that “beauty equals hope”
I have been designing since I was a little girl embedded in the traditions of my native Nogales, AZ. The rich textures of desert and sky continue to be a deeply grounding influence in my simple design aesthetic.
When I walk into a space I’m listening for the components of the building story - who are these people, what do they value – I hold this in sacred trust. I step into this with them to create their own unique narrative. This connection feeds creativity and agility; it is the nourishment for what I do.
3 Marias studio is located in the 12th South neighborhood in Nashville, TN where I live and garden with my husband and our dog Chula.
