Marisa is one of the most talented and creative designers I know. She approaches every project with enthusiasm and sensitivity and has a amazing ability to transform even a mundane brief into a butterfly. She pours her curiosity for learning and her many influences into her work and always creates unique and memorable designs.

I come from the DIY generation. I spent a lot of my time trying figuring out some things I shouldn’t have been worrying about and I became fully aware of it when I worked with Marisa. Being a team is much better than being solo. Sharing your own ideas with someone is the first step to actualize it. Marisa helped me to give a professional image to my project. She believed in it from the very early stages. She worked on my side accommodating and anticipating all my needs, having always gentle words of support. I feel honored to have had this remarkable contribution from a graceful, supportive, and professional such as Marisa.

I have had the pleasure in experiencing Marisa’s expertise and professionalism on many occasions. Her work as an artist is refreshing and she works from her heart which is apparent in her work. She is always reliable and someone I can count on. She helped me get organized and put my website together and much more. She was truly a gift. Thank you Marisa.
