Hello, I'm Mary

Faded_edited.jpg

I'm a wife, a mom and a grammy, living in Northern California.  Hub and I are both retired and loving it. I enjoy watercolor painting and find time when ever I can to paint.

 

My original watercolor paintings have been recreated and turned into  Giclée prints by scanning them and then processing them in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.  They are then printed in-house, onto cold press finished watercolor paper using our Canon Pixma Pro printer.  Most designs are made up into 4 sizes; 11X14 inches, 8X10 inches, 5X7 inches, or a fold over card that measures 4.25X5.5 inches after the fold.

 

The final prints are signed by hand in pencil, scored if they are cards, then sealed into plastic sleeves with backing and a little writeup about me.  Finally, they are placed into the Etsy shop, delivered to local stores to be stocked, or, very occasionally, they might go to an art show.

...and I've never met a flower I didn't want to paint.

The photo at the top of the page will soon be 15 years old.  I've been on Etsy since 2015. You can still find me there.  I don't plan on leaving.

I have changed my business name from With Love from Mary to Mary Braz Designs.  I've added many new features to this website so that I might be able to connect with you and sell my prints and paintings here as well.

 

I want to add that I am daily inspired by scripture and love to share God's word.  I'm pretty much a shy person and it feels awkward to promote myself. But here I am, humbly inviting you to join my monthly news letter which will put you in touch with lots of fun facts like how I go from a video of a butterfly to a painting and print that you might like to paint too, or purchase for your wall.

I am so happy you are here.
