Hazel Maria

Profession: Almost Art History and Curating graduate/ freelance art writer.

Tell us about you:

3rd year student longing to return to Liverpool and acquire employment. Figuring out what it means to have a voice and talk about art, but when I grow up I want to be a curator of contemporary art.

What inspires you?

The creative energy in the north, vegan options, walking around exhibitions and huge sculptures. My mum’s dedication to having me as her background picture.

What do you love about where you live?

It’s easy to slip in to anonymous tourist mode in Liverpool, except I don’t get lost anymore. Also the size of the seagulls.

What’s your favourite local hangout?

Root Coffee and the steps of the Metropolitan Cathedral. Anywhere I can rest a notebook on my knees.

What would your superpower be?

To be able to become invisible. No invite? No problem.

Tell us a secret.

I get Toby Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal mixed up, I’m genuinely not sure which is which.
