Marcella Kriebel’s watercolor illustrations bring a splash of color and a smile wherever they’re spotted: whether it’s a print in a friend’s home, one of her eye-catching outdoor murals or on the menu of your local restaurant.
In addition to her well-known food illustrations, Marcella brings her distinctive style and bright watercolor palette to pieces celebrating culture, social justice initiatives, and all things homegrown.
Marcella Kriebel has always been an artist and foodie, with barefoot gardening and bright paints reflected in her earliest memories. A love of art and culture-through-cuisine led her to receive degrees in Studio Art and Cultural Anthropology, a combination that springboarded her into travelling, journaling and cooking in numerous Latin American countries.
Marcella moved to Washington, D.C. in 2009 for an internship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and now splits her time between her Native Pacific Northwest, and Washington, DC while continuing to travel to keep the creativity flowing. Her retail shop is located on the Brookland Arts Walk in Washington, DC, and she is an active member of the Arts Community in Hood River, Oregon.
She is the author of the illustrated cookbooks, Mi Comida Latina and Comida Cubana. Both cookbooks feature over a hundred of Marcella’s favorite Latin American dishes captured in vibrant watercolor ready to be explored. Outside of the art world, Marcella is an enthusiastic river kayaker and snowboarder who appreciates the great outdoors as a balance for the busy life of an artist and entrepreneur.
