Welcome to Marie Marfia Fine Art

Here you’ll find portrait art, skeleton art, and landscape art, all done by me, Marie Marfia, in pastels, my medium of choice. I live and work in Ludington, Michigan, a perfectly lovely town on the shores of Lake Michigan. It’s awesome here. Enjoy your stay!

Visit my studio

I have a new studio! It’s right in front of my house now. So convenient to just step out my door and go to work. I love it!

If you’re in Ludington, Michigan, and you’d like to stop by, call or text me, 904-566-4473, and I’ll be happy to show you what I’ve been working on.

Hope to see you soon!

Skeleton art

I have created over 60 skeleton paintings now and I have no plans to stop making them! Send me your suggestions! Maybe I’ll transform your idea into a work of skeleton art! Here’s a link to all my skeleton art.

Landscape art

I’m lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and I celebrate my good fortune by painting what I see all around me, whether it’s the dunes along the shores of Lake Michigan or the trees and waterways in the Manistee National Forest. It’s all inspirational and I love to capture it with pastels. Here’s a link to my landscapes.

Portrait art

I love to paint people, including full figure studies and close up head portraits. I accept commissions, so if you have a treasured photo of someone you love that you’d like made into a work of art, please contact me. Here’s a link to my commissions page where you can read more about my process and see examples of my portrait painting style.
