Then there's me...

My professional artistic training began early. As a teenager, I studied under the tutelage of a local artist who introduced me to the drafting techniques of the Renaissance masters. From these lessons, I knew I wanted to learn more about these amazing artists and hone my own skills. Eventually I moved to Florence, Italy, where I earned my M.A. in Art History while diligently developing my artistic abilities. I opened my studio in 2011. Today, my customers are my great inspiration. From their photos I create custom fine art portraits and continuously develop my drawing skills and explore new artistic challenges.

See more of my works, including animals, families and weddings in the portrait gallery. The studio has grown to include a new Art Studio Shop, including lovely hand-drawn animal art in coloring books & pages, fine art prints, lovely accessories and more!!

In the News

“When it comes to cherishing your beloved pet and bringing fresh life into any room – pet portraits from Artistry by Lisa Marie are the new black. These classy fine art drawings capture the unique beauty and personality of your furry companions. From the gleam of love in their eyes to the graceful (and playful) tilt of their head, these stunning portraits are drawn from your favorite photos to commemorate your best friend and bring fine art into your home.” – Moderndog
