Maria Franklin’s personal journey of love and healing overflows into her creative ministry of heartfelt scriptural artwork. We pray her fine art will find a special place in your heart and home too.
"I love God...He inspires me. I love His word. It inspires me creatively to speak through handmade pieces.
"I am so grateful for His saving grace in my life and the abundant gifts through prayer and grace. Sweet intimacy with Him in the still quiet places led me to connect with Him and then express such overflow of gratitude and love through creativity - through creating pieces that silently speak His story of love, healing and redemption and a way to praise Him while I make pieces."

MADE by HEART, and by HAND
Maria finds joy in each handmade piece, witnessing to the healing love that she herself has experienced. Prayer is an endless source of inspiration and her deep personal well of empathy for her family and friends overflows into each creation.
From her cliffside home studio in Southern California where she resides with her husband and children, Maria designs and details religious art painstakingly in wax, and has each unique piece handcast by local foundries in solid bronze, brass or sterling silver. The whole process can take months to perfect.
In this exclusive collaboration, Maria has opened up her heart and hands to share her adventure with the Creator, and we invite you to join in. Each piece is meant to be used, loved, prayed with, treasured, gifted, and displayed as a constant reminder of grace and royalty.
Three distinct pieces form our Center Peace Works x House of Royals art collection: a Face of Christ in brass on reclaimed California cedar wood cross frame or brass frame; a rosary chaplet with sword, shield, breastplate, helmet and belt of virtues inspired by Ephesians 6 with accompanying brass Holy Spirit hanger; and a brass Triumph cross, unframed with back hook or in brass frame.
Maria is also periodically available for custom art by commission.SHOP FINE ART
