custom house paintings

home sweet home

There are certain places on this Earth that just make us feel at home. For me, there is a special place in my house that we call the "cozy corner" - a place to read, drink tea, and watch the fireplace.


Close your eyes now, and imagine your happy place. In my Home Sweet Home paintings, I bring the magic of that space onto paper.

These illustrations can also make a wonderful gift. If your loved one has a place that is special to them, this gift will transport them to their happy place with just one glance.

"Mars is an incredible artist who was able to take rough ideas and craft them into an intricate, completely unique, and absolutely gorgeous family crest that is now a focal point in our home. Her attention to detail, patience, and care for her work are unmatched. We could not have imagined a better piece of art and the finished product brought tears to our eyes!"
