 Markianna Svorec – Artist / Painter / Vintage Fashion

Markianna started painting in 2016 on a whim. Finding it to be both soothing and rewarding, she has since been learning with her paintings. Although she is fairly new to the scene she has already sold paintings to couples in Indiana and Michigan. As her art is taking off, she is very excited to have the ability to create such fun works of expression.  Her art takes people to a fun place in their heart where canvas meets the inner workings of Markianna’s happiness and blues. When she isn’t managing Sundance Studios Event Space, she enjoys Vintage fashion, Vintage décor, museums, animals and personal connections. Markianna is humbled and honored to be a part of the 2018 Spring Art Hop, and looks forward to meeting creative souls like hers.
