Originals are drawn with wax and oil-based colored pencil on museum quality two-ply Bristol vellum. Limited edition prints are reproduced on either Museao Portfolio Rag or Verona textured 285g, depending upon texture needs of the picture. Frames custom made to meet the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) requirements are available for both originals and prints.

Additional frame styles are available upon request. Customers may order prints custom made in differing sizes. Contact Marian (ladlock@msn.com or phone 651.792.6005) for custom options and pricing.


In addition to specializing in botanical subjects, I also find great pleasure in drawing landscapes, animals, portraits or any subject that you may want reproduced in colored pencil. Contact Marian (ladlock@msn.com or phone 651.792.6005)


Over time, I have had requests to do commissioned paintings of a variety of topics. One was for a toy carousel which turned out to be a delightful project. Other subjects I have painted are special to friends of mine, like the Old Machine Shed and the Hall of Philosophy at Chautauqua paintings. I accept commissioned work to paint most any topic.
