Marisa's art is inspired by nature and she says that through her paintings she explores " the organic patterns and intricate details impressed on everything from the earth."
Marisa's paintings have a soulful, yet joyful feel to them. This particularly comes through in her paintings of animals. Clockwise from top left: Little Bunny Nahko, Fox in Ferns, Wren the Wandering Llama, Little Owl Mosi.
Marisa also paints beautiful feathers, sticks and other found objects. Clockwise from top left: Chevron Feathers, Spring Bundle, White Moth Wings,
Marisa's work speaks to me because it expresses exactly what I feel about nature; exactly how it feels to observe the tiny ridges in a feather, the whorls on a butterfly's wing, the soulful look in the eyes of an animal. It is subtle, magical and elusive. I love art that makes me want to keep on looking and looking and looking.
