“We ought to talk less and draw more. I personally, should like to renounce speech altogether and, like organic nature, communicate everything I have to say in sketches.”  Goethe, Italian Journey

Mariana sees surface design as visual poetry and explores her love of drawing in the rich heritage of textiles, wallpapers and patterns. She finds inspiration in her garden and the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia where she lives and works on commissions and collaborations with like-minded artists and designers.

In 2016 Mariana graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with her M.A. in Fibers.
