How are you?
Covid-19 and now fires in California.
People ask me if I’m ok from fire because I live in Sonoma, CA.
We are lucky, earlier not far from Sonoma near Napa got big fires,
Now, Point Reyes where South West of Sonoma.
Sometimes it smelled like fire smoke, but just closing windows we were fine.
Early morning, around 7am we go to play tennis, that time wind took
smoke away and we could play tennis without smoke.
The past couple days we got normal air condition.
I’m happy to announce my solo show at the Northcoast Artists Gallery in
We set up the show before yesterday.
Our display committee did very beautiful job. I’m so pleased.
Looking at paintings in person is much better than virtual.
If you have a chance to come to see my show please do so.
Mendocino Coast is much cooler place.

I found a great printer to print my images on special coated watercolor paper.
Their printer prints 720dpi which is very fine print with archival ink which is lightfast for least 75 years.
They make beautiful prints. I’m very happy with them.
So I started selling large Giclee prints which is same size of my large painting.
Image size around 30" x 40" $450, 29” x 14” $380, image size around 21” x 14.5” $300.
Ship unframed, unmatted print. So shipping fee is much less expensive. Only $15 - $20 with insurance.
I’m working on shopping cart for the large Giclee print, but it takes time.
If you are interested in, e-mail me the number and title of the image to firstname.lastname@example.org, I will e-mail you back with the link which you may purchase on line.
Mariko Irie, a lifelong painter, was born and raised in Tokyo. She
received her BFA at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, 1973. 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 in numerous solo and group shows, receiving honors
including: having been selected for “California Contemporary Art Collection
2017-2018” at the California State Capital; top prize of “Outstanding
Visual Artists” at Museum of the Living Artist in San Diego, 2011; having paintings selected for the cover of the Mendocino Art Center’s magazine “Mencodino Arts” winter issue, 2008; chosen for the posters of “Art in the Garden”, 2008, Mendocino Music Festival, 2004, Winesong, 1995. Mariko’s paintings are widely represented in collections both public and private throughout the United States, Canada, England, Germany and Japan.
Mariko has been seeking eternal peace and beauty. She hopes that the silence of her painting gives room for contemplation.
She has been fascinated by painting watercolors for thirty years
using a wet on wet technique to bring out the watercolor’s uniqueness
and charm, adding layers of glazing to create rich paintings. She
creates these paintings in a way that retains a distinctive look
associated with the medium. Her paintings are rich in the traditional style and have a wonderful contemporary feel.
Mariko Irie is represented at Northcoast Artists Gallery in Fort Bragg, Highlight Gallery in Mendocino, and Gallery at Glendeven Inn, Little River, California.
