About Maia Arts

Maia Arts is the home of Thea and Eric Maia, and their collective and individual artistic endeavors.

My name is Thea Maia and I don’t remember a time in my life where I wasn’t doing some form of art. I am the forth out of five generations (so far) of women with college art degrees who have become artists and art educators.

In my freshman year of college, I became the first Presidential Scholarship student in the long history of the University of Southern California to both major in Art and become a member of their prestigious Honor’s Program.

I'm Eric Maia, also known as celadon, an artist, musician, and Web programmer from Seattle. My background is in the visual arts, and I collaborate on art projects with my wife Thea (more about that in her bio).

I've been making music as celadon for the last 10 years or so, exploring ambient, industrial, noise, and improvised/ experimental styles and performing music for butoh dance and other performances.
