About A MAZ Design

Creative Imagery is the artistic outlet for designer Maurene Rutkin. Everyone has a unique creative ability that should be explored. I have a love of nature, color, and design that inspires me to create. I have a great passion for photography. Being able to enjoy color, design and art via photography has enriched my experiences in life. I enjoy taking photos to create altered reality with them. Photography is my canvas for Creative Art and Design.
