About us

The House of Maria was born long before it arrived on the waves of grace in the little coastal town of Mossel Bay in South Africa.  
Doors opened in 2007 and the creative bursting of life was celebrated.

The House of Maria consists of a dedicated team who gives life to Maria’s art and designs. The company is headed by Francois Oosthuizen, whose business expertise and financial direction is leading Maria’s vision into the future – making them a power couple designated to see God’s purpose and calling fulfilled in everything they do.

As a company, House of Maria has a story to tell, a story of love and grace and goodness – a story not about themselves, or the people who work for them – but God’s story as it shines through their hearts and is caught on canvas.  
It is their vision to embrace life and turn a head to again glance hopingly at the future – at the possibility of a resurrected dream.  
It is their honor to strive for excellence and professional service.  

Since Maria’s Exhibition in New York City in 2012 an ever-increasing demand, all over the world for Maria’s Artworks has prompted us to make available the very first selection of some of Maria’s most popular fine art prints to the United States of America.


If you invest in an awesome original fine art print or gift – you can be sure that much care went into each piece and that it is ‘Maria Guaranteed.’  

Today she is well known and nicknamed, ‘South Africa’s artist of the People.’

House of Maria is not merely a corporate business or a velvety Gallery - it is a home to each visitor, a piece of heart to each buyer, a place where you are remembered and where you feel appreciated – whether you buy or just sit with a beautiful cup of coffee...  
drinking in the stories on the wall.

House of Maria – a Welcome to all!
