Hi, I'm Marianne Orlando,
a freelance illustrator in
Framingham, MA!

Illustration for me is a life-long passion. I've known I was an illustrator since I was 4 years old. I see beauty everywhere, and I want to capture it in my drawings. And I'm known for whimsical drawings.


I'm here to help you when you need a unique gift -- not a "Gee, you shouldn't have" gift, but one they will truly cherish and remember for years to come!


I do commissioned portraits of people, pets, and even homes from my studio. All of it is freehand. My clients love them for ...

• graduations

• weddings

• christenings

• retirement gifts

• friends who are downsizing

• any special event!


I get my inspiration from my training as a landscape architect and from nature -- the sun, plants and butterflies.


Interested in a commission? It's easy: Email me a few pics from your smartphone, and you'll get a custom, personalized drawing -- a personal gift that only you can give. To a loved one, a friend or even yourself.

Free cost estimates on request.

Email me a jpeg and I’ll do a drawing ... together
we can make a keepsake.
