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 (firstname.lastname@example.org 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 (email@example.com or phone 651.792.6005)
Painting pet portraits is delightful. Most of the portraits I do are for the owners. I’ve learned through experience, that one significant characteristic of a pet is to “see” its eyes. The animal’s eyes are crucial to capturing the essence of the animal and making it appear lifelike in my painting. I welcome commissions to paint many different types of pets.
