I Was One of Those Kids

You know, the quiet one holding the notebook. The tattered, dog-eared notebook filled with bits of writing and curious sketches of plants, animals, and imaginary beings. Today, I continue to paint and draw.

 

Below is my portfolio. If you decide to take any of the images and use them elsewhere, I only ask that you credit me by saying "Art by Marisa Fife." My thanks!
