Mariah Quintanilla is a self-taught freelance illustrator based in the magical forests of Northern California. Her work is bold and organic, blending intricate pen drawings with a pop of digital color. She specializes in portraits, but looks forward to expanding her portfolio.


Mariah's illustration clients include Sacramento Magazine, Comstock's Magazine, and various musicians and authors. She also designs logos for local businesses. She draws inspiration from just about everything, from nature to social justice and architecture. 


When she's not making art, you may find Mariah sipping on coffee in a hipster coffee shop, hiking in her hometown or chasing after her "spirited" dog, Coco. She would love to work with you on your next project.


Feel free to say hi!
