Hi! I'm Maria, the artist behind MKRts&Crafts.  The name comes from a play on my initials, MKR, and since I've always been artsy and crafty, it worked out pretty sweetly to make the perfect business name, "MK Arts and Crafts".

I'm a pyrography artist, which is just a fancy term meaning I burn permanent markings into wood using a specialized pen. Everything I create is done by hand; no laser engraving machines, no mass production of items, just good old fashioned hand-made art.

What started out as a "side hustle" hobby has quickly turned into a fast-growing small business thanks to the amazing support of loyal followers, both near and far. 

My commitment to quality products, exceptional services and incomparable customer care is what keeps my community of customers coming back again and again. I never stop improving my skills, and am continuing to expand my offerings based on how I can best serve not only the South Jersey area, but world wide as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

"I had bought from Maria before, but I was in need of something very special recently. I reached out to her to create a memory box for my angelic daughter who passed at 16 after a lifelong battle with a rare disease. I had a few ideas—Juliet’s favorite books, her portrait, a cherry blossom to represent the short but beautiful life she led. I even asked if her name inscribed on the top of the box could match a tattoo I had recently gotten. Maria brought all of my ideas to life. And to my surprise, the back of the box is an image of Juliet sitting on our dock in the Poconos, looking out over the lake. Do no hesitate to purchase from MKRTSandcrafts. You will not be disappointed."
