MaryAnna Coleman is a New Jersey-based artist working primarily in watercolors, colored pencil, gouache, and acrylics.  

Her whimsical style reflects her affinity for color and pattern, and customers are often drawn to the level of detail in her paintings.

MaryAnna’s work is influenced by her travels, architecture, textiles, children's books and love of animals. She frequently works on commission, with particular success in portraits of homes, gardens, wedding scenes, pets, matchbooks, popular venues and restaurants. She also makes custom wedding/family crests, as well as wedding related art for Save the Dates, invitations, and decor (table numbers, napkins, backdrops, etc). She also produces professional giclee prints of her original artwork, as well as custom note card and stationery designs. She is open to hearing any project ideas!

MaryAnna’s work has been seen in Town & Country, West Elm pop-up shops and “The Scout Guide.” She was selected to be a part of The Scouted Studio's "Emerging Artist Show". In a “Shop Local” contest, she was selected as one of the top Home Decor shops in Northern New Jersey. Most recently, New York Times best-selling author Louise Penny commissioned MaryAnna to design and create the end papers in her latest books - "Glass Houses", “Kingdom of the Blind”, “A Better Man”, “All the Devils Are Here” and "The Madness of Crowds".  MaryAnna received her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art at Gettysburg College.
