With a broad range of artistic styles and technical skills, Marien Lovett, the owner/designer of Metis Graphics, provides clients with unique solutions that reflect their individual tastes and suit their specialized needs.

Marien has expertise in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, Painter, and several other programs. She is an excellent editor and writer and enjoys cartooning and animation. She is also a skilled photographer and adept at repairing and enhancing photographs using Photoshop.
She began her career in graphics as a illustrator for molecular biology presentations contracted by pharmaceutical companies and physicians preparing research grants. These were created from rough pencil sketches submitted by the clients. Samples of these can be viewed here.
Prior to this, she earned a PhD in Comparative Literature and philosophy and was trained as a classical musician. Recently, she has pursued her interest in painting and printmaking, and has created a series of prints depicting scenes in West Marin and the Sierras.
Marien lives on a beautiful wooded hillside in Lagunitas, CA with her husband, David, four pet goats, four rescue dogs, and two cockatiels. These animal friends will be featured in the illustrated childrens’ books she is now working on.
