At Castelo Portrait Art we are dedicated to giving back to the community and love to help in any way that we can! Having been in the Arts for over 15 years, Maria loves to give to different causes, especially those that are linked to helping Children, Veterans and fundraising animals. Maria has achieved every degree an artist can in the Photography and Mixed Media industry and has won many local, state, national and international competitions. She has been published 9 times in the last 2 years and feels extremely fortunate to be able to do what she loves and give back to the community at the same time. “I am extremely passionate about giving back to my community and support local charities that are important to me. In fact, I am committed to donating $200,000 worth of goods, services and cash to organizations in 2019! It is my goal!” -Maria Sampaio, M. Photog., M. Artist, Cr.
