Hello friends and patrons! I embarking on an exciting seven-city media tour of North America doing TV interviews and one-day appearances at museums and galleries! You can come see me at the venues listed below where I will be speaking and doing mouth-painting demonstrations. I am excited to be a guest on the Today Show September 28th with Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. There will also be other TV interviews announced along the way so follow me on social media for up-to-the-minute updates, videos, and photos as I document my journey on Instagram, Youtube, and Facebook! Links on my contact page. See you soon!

My illustration of "Girl with Flower" was showcased on the packaging of Omorose Cosmetic's Gift Set! I created the image digitally, first beginning with sketches of the girl and flowers using the Procreate App on my ipad drawing her with a stylus in my mouth, then further developing the drawing using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Working with founder Terry Liau on this special project has been a great experience. Visit their website at omorosecosmetics.com

I also created an extended commercial for them which you can watch here. Mariam Paré and Omorose Cosmetics

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to be photographed by NYC Photographer Kathy Shorr as part of her portrait series SHOT. Her docu-style photo journalistic project focuses on survivors of gun violence. For more about this compelling collaboration click here. The images and stories will debut later this year.
