Let go of what keeps you from your inner power. You deserve to live with freedom.
You’re an art enthusiast all about acquiring beautiful meaningful pieces of art for the safest space in your life: your home.
You’ve got so much stuff going on that seems to keep you down in the dumps. And sometimes, you don’t always have the time or the energy to go take a walk in the woods or a park full of nature to reduce stress.
All you want is for your home to be the best place for resting and recharging, surrounded by imagery that strengthens and soothes you.
Enter the Earth Conscious Artist.
*Cue dramatic drumroll and fanfare.
If there’s one thing that gets me energized, it’s telling someone’s story of empowerment through beautiful painting.
Hi, I’m Marian, and I’m not just an illustrator.
I create narrative representational Earth Conscious Art to empower and connect us with nature, so that we may continue to preserve and protect it as we reap the benefits of its healing powers. My artwork ranges from
splashy watercolor wildlife illustrations,
to traditional impressionistic oil landscapes and floral still lifes,
to imaginative portrait or figurative work blended with natural world imagery.
My mission is to work with individuals who have struggled with feelings of powerlessness, unworthiness, or feeling unheard or unseen, due to having suffered from varying degrees of trauma, abuse, injustice, or oppression.
And I collaborate with them to create an imaginative realistic artwork, which weaves their story of self empowerment with elemental and/or natural world imagery, and from which they will:
be reminded of their inner power that has always existed, and be encouraged to let go of their self limiting beliefs.
feel free, heard and powerful, and live life fully as their true authentic self.
know that they are enough, they're stronger than they think, and are totally capable of achieving their goals and dreams.
Sounds like pretty heavy stuff, huh?
(Disclaimer: I am not a licensed therapist or a counselor of any sort.)
I just know that, for me personally, both art and nature are effective channels for healing, in addition to good therapy.
And I would be honored to contribute to your journey in empowering you to own your capabilities and strengths you’ve always had, to live the life you are meant to.
With my BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts and additional training at the Academy of Arts University, Hongik University, Watts Atelier, and Smarter Art School, I have extensive experience in painting to be able to create a custom celebration of YOU.
How do I know I can do this?
Because I’ve done it for myself.
I’m a first-generation Vietnamese American, the eldest child of 3 to immigrant refugee parents who escaped a war torn country for a chance to thrive in life.
So I know a thing or two about how generational trauma can shape or alter a person’s well being.
What else should you know about me?
I’m an INFP cat lady who loves her matcha lattes. I de-stress by taking long hot showers in which I also contemplate life.
I’m all about progress not perfection, community over competition, and working with kindness and compassion. I can be overly ambitious and a bit too altruistic, so I’m thankful to be surrounded by an amazing support system that keeps me grounded and present.
When I’m not working, you can find me cat napping, watching cat videos, or bullet journaling.
