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)


The most memorable holiday-themed painting I’ve done is of the 12th Century Guardian Angel. This magnificent, larger-than-life statue stands in the sunlight in the lobby of the Melia Hotel in Mallorca, Spain. Another favorite holiday-themed painting is of two of my infant grandchildren all dressed up in their Halloween costumes. My holiday-themed paintings are favorite themes for notecards.
