My Story

Let me introduce myself, I’m Maria Newman, Director of Fill That Space.

Everyone has a story and mine is not unusual. In 2016, and having worked for Rolls-Royce as a Project Manager for 17 years, I was craving a change. I wanted to try something different. I’ve always been passionate about the arts and I thrive on helping people. And so I decided to start Fill That Space.

I want buying art to be an experience. I want buying art to be sociable. I want everyone to get involved whether young or young at heart.

One thing that surprises people is that art created by local artists is TRULY AFFORDABLE. Also, this doesn’t have to be an original painting. It can be a card that is sent to a loved one. A card that an artist has been inspired to create.

Most people know what they like. So if you like it buy it.
