Personally, mademarian.co.za is my favourite site to date. Since the initial build, we have updated the site and added e-commerce functionality:

Her fine attention to detail brings the fauna and flora (her subjects) on my screen to life.

If you’re looking for a great gift idea, a browse through her site would be very fruitful! Apart from buying art cards or limited edition prints, you can also commission your own painting.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_button button_url=”http://www.mademarian.co.za/cards-2/” url_new_window=”on” button_text=”Browse Made Marian’s art cards” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_button][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]Some of my favourites:[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row column_structure=”1_2,1_2″ _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_image src=”https://rubyseed.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/Honey-Bee-Made-Marian-Favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy.jpg” alt=”Honey Bee art card – Made Marian” title_text=”Honey-Bee-Made-Marian-Favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy” show_in_lightbox=”on” align=”center” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image src=”https://rubyseed.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/Favourites-Ostrich-painting-Made-Marian-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy.jpg” alt=”Ostrich painting – Made Marian” title_text=”Favourites-Ostrich-painting-Made-Marian-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy” show_in_lightbox=”on” align=”center” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_image src=”https://rubyseed.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/meerkat-Made-Marian-favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy.jpg” alt=”meerkat art card – Made Marian” title_text=”meerkat-Made-Marian-favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy” show_in_lightbox=”on” align=”center” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image src=”https://rubyseed.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/hoopoe-Made-marian-favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy-731×1024-1.jpg” alt=”hoopoe art card – Made Marian” title_text=”hoopoe-Made-marian-favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy-731×1024″ show_in_lightbox=”on” align=”center” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_image src=”https://rubyseed.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/Arabella-Made-Marian-favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy.jpg” alt=”Arabella tiger art card – Made Marian” title_text=”Arabella-Made-Marian-favourites-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-Consultancy” show_in_lightbox=”on” align=”center” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]Apart from displaying and selling beautiful art and cards, the Made Marian site also hosts a DogBlog. These posts are written from the perspective of Bonnie – Marian’s lively barking beagle. The stories delve into the everyday joys of Bonnie and Baxter (Bonnie’s dim-witted brother) and their adventures in the sleepy town of Stanford.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_button button_url=”http://www.mademarian.co.za/blog/” url_new_window=”on” button_text=”Read the DogBlog” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_button][et_pb_image src=”https://rubyseed.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/soppy-bax-Made-Marian-DogBlog-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-COnsultancy.jpg” alt=”Soppy Baxter Beagle dog blog Made Marian” title_text=”soppy-bax-Made-Marian-DogBlog-Pomegranite-Online-Presence-COnsultancy” show_in_lightbox=”on” align=”center” _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.17.6″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]If you are having a bad day read this blog.
