Travel cats custom portrait

Thank you for your interest in the signature portrait! This custom painting comes from one of my projects Fur coats and backpacks. Every encounter, I tune into one’s energy and capture the wind they rise. In the procedure, I take time and go into detail visually and in character and infuse a drop of fantasy. My intention is to portray each one’s soul. 


Are you ready for becoming a free-spirited travel cat? Is your furry friend craving a wild adventure? I would love to get to know you and am here to boost/celebrate a new beginning on your eternal soul journey.


Let's light a lantern together, and tell me your story tonight :)

“Our Maki is a very multi colored kitty, Mari got all of her spots and stripes and her sweet little face just right! Her watercolors are just as soft as the subject.”


“Mari did an amazing job capturing  Maki's

personality, and her love of plants! Absolutely beautiful and perfect rendering of our precious girl.”



 I love Mari’s Cat Portraits. Her skilled hand creates every thoughtful detail that really embodies the subject and also breathes life to each cat portrait. I can look at the portraits I own for hours. One of the best feelings I've had was giving them as gifts and seeing the amazement and wonder in the eye of the recipient. Thank you, Mari.

“Mari created the most magical portrait of our dog, Cody, as he sets off on a great backpacking adventure.  His portrait is one of our family's most treasured items.  Working with Mari was a delight - I could not have had a better experience! ”
