“We worked with Marissa to create our wedding invitations.  Like all brides and grooms, we wanted ours to be special.  Both of us grew up in warm climates (Florida and Barbados), and the mid-summer evening wedding was going to be in Miami, Florida at a historic home built in the early 1900s.  It was a destination wedding for most guests who were flying in from across the US and the world.  We wanted the invitation to reflect all of these dimensions.  Then, there was the practical side – providing all the information on directions, hotels, RSVP cards.
Marissa’s creative genius went to work, crafting a clever trifold with an elegant orchid motif in watercolor throughout.  The motif was repeated across our wedding invitation inserts, wedding program and table placards – an elegant thread visually bringing all of these pieces together.  She ensured there was meaning behind each design attribute – orchids reflecting the tropics of our childhood (also used in our floral arrangements); shades of orange to reflect the warm Florida sun; parchment paper for rich texture; and a script font that was elegant but still legible.  Marissa also kept our budget in mind, proposing design options to manage printing cost.  The invitations created a memorable glimpse into our beautiful wedding, and they were indeed very special.” —Amanda & David, New York City

“As someone who enjoys creative gifting, Marissa is my go-to gal.  She is a creative problem solver that with little direction but high client expectations, has churned out the perfect gift for several occasions – weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  Her flair for organization makes the process of ordering a custom watercolor a breeze.  I enthusiastically recommend working with Ms. Huber – whether for a gift or to treat yo self to a dose of creativity that is promised to add vibrancy and joy to your day.” —Dustin A., Philadelphia

” Marissa is amazing. Her work is beautiful. She captures every detail of the home! Love working with her. We have ordered several home drawings from her and recommend her to everyone!! Her artwork is truly one of a kind and although she is super quick to get the job done it looks like she spent a year creating!!!! We couldn’t be happier with our purchases!” Jacque & Chris, Nashville

“Marissa made the perfect gift cards that I was able to give my daughter at her baby shower. She designed a card for each of the gifts that were presented. The cards are mementos my daughter will treasure for years to come.” Karen Leary, Pennsylvania

“After my mother passed away and we sold our family home of 60 years, I wanted a memory of  “Granny’s House” for my nieces and nephew.  Marissa created the perfect painting from a couple of photographs taken years apart.  She was wonderful to work with, as we discussed the best angle, the best height for the bushes, the right blue for the door and shutters, etc.  “The grandkids,” now in their 40s, and their children, will always cherish this beautiful reminder of happy times with their beloved grandparents.” —Marion B., New York City

“The custom painting of our cabin is beautiful! Marissa worked hard to customize it, being sure every detail was exactly how I wanted it, and to get it to me by the date I needed it. My whole experience with her was lovely!” Beth C., Maine

“Marissa was quick to communicate with me and she kept me informed. The artwork is beautiful! She even went above and beyond and I asked her if she could send an extra piece of nice thick white paper so I could put it in a frame I wanted to use. She not only included the paper, but she even taped the piece in the center so I could put it in an 8″ X 10″ frame. It looks perfect in my master bathroom above my tub. It is very serene and calming. So glad I went with her and found this piece. I would definitely recommend going to her shop to find a one of a kind watercolor artwork.” Suzanne A., Texas

“Marissa made my Christmas! In creating our custom home portrait Marissa perfectly combined her artistic license with my wishes. Never have I been so excited about a holiday card!”  Rachel G., New Jersey

“For my wedding gift, Marissa presented my wife and I a beautiful water color of our apartment in Philadelphia.  My wife and I loved it so much, I requested a new additional water color painting of our newly purchased home.  Marissa was attentive to what we were looking for in the painting.  I was surprised how quickly the painting was finished.  The whole process was from requesting the watercolor, the painting consultation and receiving the finished product was easy and effortless (on the buyers part!).  I would recommend anyone for water color paintings, it’s been a great experience working with her.” John B., Pennsyvlania

“Marissa was great to work with on two occasions, first for my baby shower thank you cards and then for bridal shower invitations. It was especially meaningful to incorporate a personal element of the bride’s favorite flower (which would be in her bouquet) for her shower! Communication was excellent in planning custom designs and shipment was timely.” Nicole E., Boston

“Marissa is so incredibly talented and an absolute pleasure to work with. I am THRILLED with how my painting came out! It is the nicest painting in my home and one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. I’m already trying to think of something else for her to paint because I love it that much. Best Etsy artist! Best Etsy experience! Hands down Marissa is the best!” Christina D., New York

“Marissa was super easy to work with and my watercolor was even better in person! My purchase was shipped quickly and I get so many compliments on it. When I move and update my gallery wall, I will absolutely order more from her. Thank you, Marissa!” Victoria G., Florida

” My first piece from Marissa Huber. I love the colours. Reminds me of a sunset I saw once.” Gege G., Florida
