About Liesl Marelli

** Please note - limited edition art ships (on average) within 18 days from order. Apologies for the delay. If any artwork needs to be rushed, please let me know and I'll see if I can accommodate your timeline **

My photography and design styles vary because I find inspiration in a variety of places. Some artwork is subtle with gentle hues, others are bold and harsh. I do my best to stay true to the unique inspiration behind each individual piece I create. I am a photojournalist by trade but have in recent history evolved to a manipulated-photographic style where I blend lines and make artwork with the specific intent to add a chill, zen vibe to a space. My most popular collection on Saatchi Art is my "Movement" collection.

Specifically for the movement collection: "In a chaotic world, I seek peace and stillness while honoring the world and its natural movement. I find peace in the rhythmic movement of the ocean. Her personality changes as does my own - I'm drawn to her varying temperament. I am an Operation Iraqi Freedom Veteran and find that the stress carried from my military service and deployment lingers. Friends and fellow troops I know succumb to darkness and it forces me to focus on finding my peace and balance. In this collection, I observe the mood and movement of the ocean, trees, and sky. I blend the choppiness of reality to make it more peaceful while still observing the ebb and flow of Mother Nature's beauty." 

I am proud to have my artwork in private collections throughout the USA, Germany, Turkey, Spain, and Canada.
