...................About A.MARFS

What is A.MARFS?
How do I say it?
Who is behind all these whimsical prints?
A.MARFS is pronounced A (beat) MARFS.
It stands for Auntie Marf, the beloved nickname my nieces and nephews granted me a few years ago.  My favorite thing about being an auntie is all the silly, fun-times I get to have with my brothers' kids, without the responsibility or stress of being their parent. This playfulness is what I bring to my art. The landscapes I draw are big, bold, colorful interpretations of the beautiful nature that surrounds me here on Massachusetts' north shore. There are no rules. I also like to draw cats.
Be Bold. Take Risks. Choose Love. 
These are words I live by.
I want to always live my life fearlessly, joyfully, lovingly, and passionately. 
My hope is that my art inspires you to do the same.
