Hi!  My name is Maria Esztergalyos. I'm an Artist and Maker based in Seattle, WA.


I'm married and I have two sons, Charlie and Rex. I grew up in Vancouver, WA with my parents, Jules and Theresa, and older sister, Lisa. I graduated from The University of Washington in 1997, with a B.F.A. in Photography with a special interest in Adobe Photoshop.


During my college years, I worked in Retail Sales at John Fluevog Shoes in Downtown Seatte, WA.  In the summer of 1997, I moved to New York City, and continued working for John Fluevog Shoes as a Sales Rep. in his showroom.


In 2000, I started on the path to my Retouching career at Wrench LTD., a boutique retouching company specializing in high end beauty and fashion. Later, I became a Studio Manager and Retoucher for the talented commercial photographer, Monica Stevenson.


Meanwhile, I designed and launched my own leather accessory line, Majland NYC, and met my future husband, Eric Hanson.  We eventually got married, and in 2004, moved to Los Angeles, where I freelanced and also worked as a Sign Maker for Whole Foods Market.


In 2006, we moved to Seattle, where I worked as a Retoucher for R.R. Donnelly, and a few other local prepress companies.  After having kids, I freelanced for several years.


In 2014, I began my career with Nordstrom as a Digital Imaging Specialist. In 2017, I took on a new role as Digital Production Specialist.  Resume available upon request.
