Announcement    **Please note that USPS and other delivery services are experiencing unprecedented delays, and that orders shipped internationally are slower in transit than usual. Unfortunately, I am unable to predict or manage delays once orders have shipped from my studio. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.**

Welcome to my shop! I am a watercolor artist and fashion illustrator, and I love creating beautiful things for my customers and clients. I guess you could say my signature as an artist is the amount of detail I put into my watercolor paintings, and I especially love to draw people.

While fashion-inspired artwork is my specialty, I have also been commissioned for custom family portraits, commercial projects, and more. Feel free to contact me here on Etsy or at admin [!at] mariaahrens.com to make an inquiry. I would love to work with you.

I love using my talents to create beautiful things for others to enjoy. I'm very grateful for the opportunities that I've had to share my work, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds.

Thank you for supporting my art and visiting my shop!

Experience beautiful watercolor artwork and fashion illustration

Hi there! I'm Maria Ahrens, and I am a watercolor artist and fashion illustrator in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I find inspiration in many different things, but I especially love to draw people. My love of drawing emerged as soon as I was old enough to hold a crayon, and I grew up taking as many art classes as I could cram into my schedule. As a teenager, I developed an interest in fashion design and planned on pursuing a career in that.

Life happened. Plans changed. I earned a degree in Retail Merchandising from the College of Design at the University of Minnesota, and after a few years in the professional world, I launched my art business in November of 2016.

I love using my talents to create beautiful things for others to enjoy. I'm very grateful for the opportunities that I've had to share my work, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds. Thank you for supporting my art and visiting my shop!

    Owner, Artist

    Maria Ahrens is a watercolor artist & fashion illustrator based in Minneapolis, MN. She loves using her talents to express herself and create beautiful things for others to enjoy.

Production partners

  • FinerWorks Media, LLC

    San Antonio, TX

    I discovered FinerWorks through another artist and was immediately impressed by the quality of their prints. To make a print for my shop, I send them the digital scan of my artwork, and they reproduce it beautifully through their giclee printing process.

  • A framing shop

    Minneapolis, MN

    Custom framing helps to protect and preserve the artwork and is perfectly fitted to each individual print or painting. I have personally used their services before and am impressed with their workmanship and attention to detail.

  • A local specialty printer

    Brooklyn Park, MN

    To create prints of my work, I send high-resolution scans of my paintings to a specialty printer. My printer then creates the reproductions with specialized equipment and archival inks and papers.
