Hi, I'm Marianne, the designer and watercolor illustrator behind Ivy Line Design. I grew up in Somerset, OH, and for as far back as I can remember I loved making art. I constantly had the max number of items checked out from the local library so I could spend hours upon hours drawing and tracing from animal and how-to-draw books.
I knew I wanted to have some kind of creative career so I attended the Columbus College of Art & Design. I happened to take a watercolor class as an elective my senior year... and I was terrible at it! Fast forward a few years and I started experimenting with watercolor and hand lettering to create cocktail illustrations. I love traveling and am very prone to making messes with paint, so once I realized how portable and easy to clean up watercolor paint was I was hooked!
Fast forward a few more years and I started Ivy Line Design as my freelance business. My specialties are vibrant and detailed watercolor illustrations of plant and animal life, food, as well as landscapes. I use my illustrations for a variety of projects such as greeting cards that I almost always create right at my home studio in Huntington, WV
