Unleashing creativity

Hi Y'all! I'm so glad you stopped by! I have been drawing since I was a tot, and studied art and design at Marshall University. I worked for ad agencies, and got stuck in a creative rut. I went back to school at West Virginia University for my MBA and began a career in HR. I stopped drawing, painting and creating all together. Along the way, my husband and I started a family! I chose to stay at home with my children and found myself back at the drawing table...where it all began and begins again.

I started Marisamade because I love creating and LOVE when clients get excited about their commissioned pieces! At first, I didn't advertise, and just did projects via word of mouth. Thankfully, the word started spreading and I finally decided to LEAP and start a business to stay at home with my boys and still fulfill that part of me that loves to work and create.

I am inspired by people's stories. When I paint, I am thinking how I can incorporate elements that represent them in my style. I am inspired by my boys. Having children makes you look at the world in a different, very creative way. I love doing commissions of portraits for couples, families, pets, etc. I also adore animals and painting nursery art. It's a great gift to get super excited about the work you do!!

I am an optimistic, West Virginia girl, who loves coffee, fall, skiing, trips to the lake, font, hand-lettering, calligraphy, watercolors, craft beer, interesting people, family, make-up , cooking and music.

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and I could say, 'I used everything you gave me'." - Erma Bombeck

Due to the variation of computer monitor displays, the colors you see on your computer or device may vary slightly from the actual item. However the artwork is always more beautiful in person!

It takes approximately 2 weeks to reorder and receive prints. If there is an item you would like that is out of stock, please message me to see when/if it will be restocked.

Custom calligraphy is non refundable due to the nature of the product. If there is an error made by MarisaMade, I will work to correct the mistake.

Once your seat is reserved, your workshop fee is non-refundable. Your reservation helps MarisaMade plan the class and obtain materials for each student to use upon attending the workshop. If you are unable to make it to a workshop you have paid for, you may find someone to replace your spot.

Due to the custom nature, personalized products are non refundable. If your item arrives damaged, please contact MarisaMade and we will work to replace your item.

Stamps are hand-drawn and calligraphed by me and intended for your personal use. The beauty of hand-drawn, hand-written stamps is that no two are alike. Each stamp has it's own special qualities.

Hand-drawn portraits and other work are done in my own personal style. My goal is to represent a subject matter, not to make it a photographic reproduction.

I reserve the right to reproduce original artwork to resell as prints. All of my artwork is under a copyright and is not intended to be resold or reproduced by any other party except for myself and MarisaMade. Thank you for respecting my work as an artist!

I want you to LOVE your artwork and custom pieces! Thank you for checking out my shop and supporting my small business!
