– Dr. Julian Darius, Sequart Organization and Martian Lit

It was my absolute pleasure to work with Marlena. (…) She captured the essence of my character better than I could have described.  It was a wonderful experience to have her take something I only saw in my mind’s eye and make it into something I could show to others.  Would commission her again in a heartbeat.

I commissioned to do the cover art for my upcoming book. (…) I was nervous because I was being pretty specific. What I got back from Marlena, BLEW ME AWAY!
