As a youngster she made her first sculptures out of clay. Her favorite subject matter was animals.

For a brief period she was married to another Shona artist, Joseph Ndandarika. Joseph helped push her art to a professional level and Locardia was able to become a full time professional artist!

In this wonderful clip we view some paintings of Maria Pacheco:

The abstract paintings of Maria Pacheco are made by combining the symbols of native peoples of Bolivia and also the wonderful mountain ranges to be found.

Maria Pacheco passed away in 2012.

I enjoy her work with the figure almost as much as her abstract paintings because these are also very abstract.
