Intricate and whimsical illustrations of flora and fauna
Marika Paz is a self-taught artist and illustrator. She grew up in a redwood forest with her half witted gypsy mother and a wolf they thought was a dog. With a lot of time, sky, and sea, Marika developed a love for folktales and art. Her style is at once timeless, dreamy and expressive of her inner secrets.
Her art explores the relationships of animals, humans, and nature. Influenced by folk stories and mysticism, her work is dreamy and imaginative creating a world of magic, wonder, and possibilities. Marika creates intricate drawings of flora and fauna using watercolor, gouache, pencil, and ink. Her work can be seen nationally at galleries, stores, and publications.
After wandering from California, North Carolina, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Scotland, she has now docked in Portland, Or. She studied at Mount Holyoke College and the University of Edinburgh Scotland, and holds a degree in Medieval Studies. She spends her days drawing and painting in her little blue house where she lives with her Patrick (husband), Odin Wolfe (boy), and Scout (dog).
