In the procedure, I take time, go into detail visually and in character, and infuse a drop of fantasy. I intend to portray each one’s soul and their uniqueness.

“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! ”
