Maria Mohiuddin was born, alongside her identical twin, in Bangladesh in 1973 and has lived in New York for the past 30 years.  Mohiuddin’s work is predominantly created in wax and oil pastels – materials that compliment her curious obsession with fire. Her long time experimentation in wax media spans from 2005 to the present.   She began using wax as a predominant tool after destroying a displeasing piece of oil pastel with candle wax.

In 2006, she was a part of two group shows with the First Annual Harlem Summer Art show and the Tribeca Art show.
