Marika Ford was raised by thrifty immigrants with quirky senses of humor in a house generously scattered with “art supplies” where she became expert at re-imagining, reusing, and re-purposing materials for practical and creative use.
After formal studies in illustration and children’s literature, Marika embarked on a career in graphic design. She is well-versed in Adobe Creative Suite and offers design services for web and print.
A seasoned illustrator, she also offers customized pet portraits and cartoons. Visit Merrylines on Facebook to see more of her funny work!
