Maria Korporal was born in 1962 in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands. She studied graphics and painting at the St. Joost Academy of Fine Arts in Breda, the Netherlands, graduating with - among other things - a video installation. After her studies, in 1986, she moved to Italy, where she initially returned to painting and graphics. In 1989 she co-founded the publishing house Apeiron Editori, directing the production and book design. In this environment she became involved with the use of computers, and she began applying digital techniques also in her art work. Since 1998 she has dedicated herself to using the new media arts for her expression.
Until 2013 she lived in Italy in Sant'Oreste (RM). Since 2014 she has lived and worked in Berlin.
