Maria Coryell-Martin

Maria Coryell-Martin is an expeditionary artist following the tradition of traveling artists as naturalists and educators. In 2004, after graduating from Carleton College, Maria embarked on a year-long Watson Fellowship to explore remote landscapes through art. This experience sparked a resolve to continue working as an expeditionary artist focused on polar and glacier science and to inspire environmental awareness in audiences of all ages. Maria’s travels have brought her face-to-face with polar bears, leopard seals, emperor penguins, and narwhals. A memorable experience juggling clumsy sketching tools while crawling in the sand for hours to monitor walruses on a small island in eastern Greenland inspired Maria to create the Art Toolkit, an all-in-one sketching watercolor kit.
