Marianne E. Tolosa lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, mastiff, and 2 snuggly cats. She's been an artist for as long as she can remember. She took pottery classes while working towards her BA in Fine Arts as a painter, and she was immediately taken with the art form.
After being inspired by the pop culture of Japan and then moving back to Virginia she works to blend whimsy, geometry, and simplicity into her pieces, all of which can be found in the world nearby through landscapes, life, and culture.
She encourages everyone to invite the handmade into their daily life - it brings joy to the soul and communicates warmth to those who gather around you!
