My name is Mariah and I am an editorial illustrator and multidisciplinary artist living in Northern California. I was first introduced to the world of editorial illustration while interning at a science magazine in Washington, D.C. Here, I realized that illustration is an ideal intersection of two passions of mine; art and story.
After my internship ended, I began building up my portfolio of work and landed my first paid illustration gig in the now-defunct Sacramento Magazine a year later. Since then, I’ve illustrated for various magazines, including lifestyle, literary, and science publications.
I create art in a variety of mediums, from digital illustrations to chalk art, and am most creatively engaged when I am free to change things up often. Among MANY other things, I am inspired by nature, hand-crafted materials, literature, movies, and food.
I approach every project with curiosity, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail. When creating a work of art, my two main goals are to make sure my clients’ needs are met and that the resulting work has lasting impact.
Feel free to reach out with a project idea or to simply say, hey!
