Mariah stays pretty busy with commissions these days and is happy to take on new projects. From pet portraits to homestead paintings or even a special project. Whatever you have in mind, Mariah is ready to discuss the details. Check out the Commissions process to learn a little more. In the future we have plans of adding slide shows of past projects. Thank-you for your patience as this site continues to grow.
Mariah's colorful animal series is popular with pet owners and animal lovers alike. The vibrant colors and fast brush strokes add life to any space. Commission the artist to paint her interpretation of your pet or browse existing works.
I offer a unique painting class experience in a few different formats. I bring everything to you for a boutique experience. Whether you desire one on one classes or a full party for large groups. I can come to your home, business, school, or church fellowship hall. Contact me to discuss further details and pricing. I also offer local one-on-one classes in my home studio for those who live locally and perhaps want to surprise a loved one with a personalized gift for a special occasion. Classes are by appointment only.
About the Artist
Grew up on creek banks, rope swings, and horseback; played in corn fields, berry patches and cow pastures; studied at Piedmont College and traveled across the US and Europe. After nearly a decade and a half of being a military wife and home-schooling mother, Mariah Hope has now returned to Habersham County for her two younger children to attend high school. She enjoys hiking, trout fishing and exploring local vineyards as she rediscovers these hills where she herself grew up. Mariah translates and expresses her love of North Georgia through line, form, shape and color-- inviting you to take a walk in her beloved North Georgia Mountains. Smell the sweet jasmine and mountain laurel, taste the honeysuckle, hear the crunch of leaves beneath your feet and bubbling brook. Stepping into one of Mariah’s paintings, you experience the river from perspective of the fish, who has paused a moment underwater, or up in a tree from the perspective of a wide-eyed raccoon. Mariah likes to capture perfect moments which you can take home and enjoy over and over again.
