mari jagt’s art — painting, poetry, and colours from the pacific, to your heart.

mari is an ontario-born and raised creator, who now resides and creates by the sea on canada’s west coast. a fan of history and mythology, culture and the strange, she has been creating since a very young age. once a professor in art school told her that her colours were “far too bright”, but that hasn’t stopped her. she enjoys documentaries and strawberry milk, bunny rabbits, flowers, and horror. her main mediums include, but are not limited to: writing, acrylic, watercolours, ink pens, pencil, and mixed media.

compared to the sea

i am so tiny
in comparison to the islands

and i am so large
compared to what i thought i’d be
