Artist & Illustrator

Provided by: Kelly Maryanski

Fast Turnaround Time Art Needs

Born with a gift and natural prowess in art, specifically illustrations, Kelly Maryanski had her first professional stint in high school through the recommendation of her mentor.

Kelly graduated with honors at the Denison University with a degree in fine arts. She published numerous books, done a number of solo and group exhibits, and received various awards and recognition.

I have an incredibly fast turnaround time and never had any clients who felt I am on the wrong track while working on a project.

Kelly offers all types of illustration, whimsical ink and watercolor painting, sculpture, photo editing, design, graphic design, and art direction.

I just finished illustrating a book of short stories for novelist Dan Burns entitled "No Turning Back" that turned out just lovely.

So if you're up for whimsical-meets-turn-of-the-century illustrations, choose Kelly!
