Brief Version
Chris Maier was born in 1949 in rural Maryland to a family of nine children. His parents provided him with parochial schooling, culminating in a degree from University of Maryland, (B.A. 1972). He chose a career in art education. His varied interests in art, music and language have been carefully nurtured these last thirty years.

Retired from teaching in 2004, Chris is presently involved in a broad range of sustained, integrated creative endeavor. A bright spot will be the publication of his children's story, Waterlily Love, the joyful and surprising tale of  Toodles, The Teenage Tadpole. The opening cascade of music on the home page of this web site is taken directly from Toodles' original theme song.
