About me

Who is Florida Girl?

Who is a Florida girl?  It's the stay at home mom, dreaming of taking her children to the beach and having less worries in life.  It's the working girl boss with big hopes and dreams of Palm trees and sun!  It's that girl who wants the beach in her backyard.  Its that girl that isn't perfect but wants to feel confident in her own skin.   If she can dream it, she can wear it!  She is YOU! 



My name is Marisa.  I am an artist and small business owner. Figure drawing, printmaking, and painting were my emphasis in college. I love everything about the beach life, but my home is in between cornfields in the Midwest.  I am just an average mom and wife, dreaming of the day she can move her family to the beach.  The beach is my escape.  The ocean rehabilitates me.  We fell in love with the beach a few years ago and we now own a condo in Destin, FL.   In 2020, I picked up my paintbrush 15 years after college, marriage, two businesses and two children later.   I found my passion to paint sea life and Florida girls on the beach.  I decided to share my paintings with everyone by turning them into mugs, tumblers, clothing, beach towels and more!   I love to bring or wear these items on Florida trips and create cute outfits combos!   I can feel the confidence in wearing these items when I am on vacation!  I wanted to create unique beach themed items.  I am excited for you to come and shop with me!

Support Local Artists

My hobby is painting and creating beautiful Florida Themed mugs, beach towels, tumblers, and clothing, but I still work full time jobs.  You can check out those companies below.
