Mariel Andrade was born in Seattle to Brazilian & Chilean parents.
Having spent much of her childhood in Brazil, she was enchanted by the lush & colorfully palettes of Brazils culture & land. She then began drawing & later taught herself to paint.
She is passionate about music and is inspired by romanticism, humor, people she admires and strangers in old photographs.
Fascinated by capturing the emotion and personality of each individual while imagining what their story could have been; are the key components to her work.
Mariel is our featured boutique artist this month, showcasing her hand painted vintage jackets of iconic women in rock. A West Seattle artist, Mariel's portraits pay homage to some of music's most important Viragos and Innovators.
