My name is Luanne Marten and I’m a licensed product artist and surface pattern designer.
I’ve been painting and drawing professionally for 20+ years, first as a childrens’ book illustrator and more recently focusing on acrylic painting, art licensing, and pattern design. I’ve licensed art for garden flags, greeting cards, paper goods, home décor, trays, mugs and fabric. Additionally, I’ve created art for over 40 kids books in the educational market as well as numerous kids magazine pieces. I excel at meeting deadlines, working efficiently and flexibly to meet client needs.
A love of drawing led to fine arts training, later to digital painting and graphic design. I painted all digitally for about 10 years while in kids publishing. I gained more digital skills while working for a small company as their graphic designer for 9 years.
When not wielding a brush or mouse, I love to read any good page-turner, especially cop thrillers, and browse estate sales for hidden gems. My husband and I also love to be with our four grown sons, their wives, and our five delightful grandchildren!
I'd love to discuss your project needs!
