Mitsy's Rose I

This rose is so colorful. It’s white and pinkish red trim. But white part gets a lot of color by light. I put this rose against north window and painted.


This is the first day of this rose.

“Hello Rosy”

This rose is a happy chatterbox, don’t you think?

About Mariko Irie

Mariko Irie, a lifelong painter, was born and raised in Tokyo. She received her BFA at Musashino Art University in Tokyo.  Mariko moved to Mendocino in 1982 to pursue her painting. She studied printmaking with Robert Rhodes and American Realism painting with Bill Martin at College of the Redwoods in Fort Bragg.

She has been fascinated by painting in Watercolour for over twenty years. She creates the paintings in a way that retains the distinctive look associated with the medium.

Also she is really enjoying painting in Watermixable Oil, which is rich, vivid colour and forgiven medium.

Her paintings are rich in the traditional style and have a wonderful, contemporary feel.

She has been in numerous solo and group shows, receiving prizes as well as having paintings selected for posters of the Winesong 1995, the Mendocino Music Festival 2004,  “The Voices From Earth” concert 2005,  “Art in the Garden” 2008, “Mendocino Coast Garden Tour” 2013 and a cover of the magazine “Mendocino Arts” winter issue 2008.  Her art works are well known locally and widely collected privately and publicly throughout the United States, Japan, England, Germany and Canada, including the public collection of Newport Communications in California and the Miasa Governor in Japan.
