About ArtbyMaryReed

Sales 170
On Etsy since 2013

Art meets science. Science meets art. For the good of our eARTh.

My artistic passion is influenced by my love of all creatures real and wistfully real, the world's majestic ocean depths and shores, my beloved Colorado mountains and, of course, my lifelong fascinations with space and time. In the past, I've posted my art on Facebook and/or created special art gifts for friends and family. That's been fun, inspirational and always gratifying, but now my friends and family are encouraging me to share my work with a greater audience. Having my own Etsy Shop seems like a good place to start. I hope you agree!

I grew up in Colorado and love her spectacular mountains, lakes, dunes, rocks and wildlife, but I've always felt a special connection to the ocean. After earning my A.A. in Art from Red Rocks Community College, I moved to Hawaii to study Marine Biology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I was born on Earth Day and believe I can make a positive difference in preserving and enriching all life on our planet, starting with life in and around our oceans. Art remains my constant companion and I'm never without something (or someone) to draw with (or on)!

Visit my website at artbymaryreed.com and enjoy exploring my Original Art Gallery and my Photo Gallery. Many of you have asked me for information about purchasing my original art in addition to items made featuring my art. Visit my Events page on my website or my Contact Me page on my website to inquire about purchasing originals or for any questions you may have. Of course, you can also always send me a convo here via my Etsy Shop. Custom orders with items featuring my art are always welcome. I've had a great time creating several custom gifts over the years.

Dedication

If you have seen the documentary "The Cove," then you know the horrors that occur every year as dolphins and other mammals are taken from us in unspeakably cruel ways. Sadly, "The Cove" is just one of too many stories of man destroying some of our most precious resources. Let us be aware of the world we live in and do our parts to make it a better place for all life on Earth. Everyone has some part to play, so let's play it right.

My Etsy Shop, website, Spoonflower fabric designs, Facebook and Instagram pages are celebrations of life and are dedicated to all who work so hard to create, preserve, enrich and sustain life on our planet:

Proud to say all items made with my art are HANDMADE IN THE USA!

Thank you!

Additional policies and FAQs
Scarves and ties are made with silky faille which is 100% polyester for beautiful draping and quality as well as easy care. Spot clean, hand wash or machine wash using cold water and delicate cycle. Air dry. Use iron on polyester setting to smooth.

Our canvas bags and t-shirts feature Mary's art on transfers that have been ironed on and have been treated with Scotch Gard (TM) to help repel liquids and block stains. Transfers on fabrics are delicate and to retain their best appearance, fabrics with transfers typically should not be washed in the washer and should never be dried in the dryer. Machine washing and/or drying may cause shrinkage and may loosen or even remove the transfer. You may iron the fabric around the transfer with a cool iron being very careful not to touch the transfer. You can also place a piece of parchment paper over the transfer to protect it when ironing. The transfer may melt if it comes in direct contact with even a cool iron. If the transfer loosens, cover it completely with a piece of parchment paper and press over it with an iron set on medium (polyester).

Custom orders are ALWAYS welcome! If you see an image at www.artbymaryreed.com that you would like added to a note or greeting card, canvas bag, apron, cap, shirt, scarf or tie, just let us know!
