Biography


"For me, painting is a new way of seeing, a new way of being in the world."  
 
Marilyn loves the creative process, from the first spark of an idea to the completed product.  She finds a sense of connection with the world through the beauty of nature and her expression of it.  She strives to evoke positive feelings of joy and well-being to her viewers.
 
Marilyn enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects being most interested in the effects of light and the application of paint.  She often paints en plein air bringing those studies into the studio to create larger paintings.  She also enjoys painting figures and portraits that represent a culture or way of life believing that we are all connected and part of creation and that our actions have an effect on the natural world.   Marilyn enjoys experimenting with many tools to apply the paint so that her work is painterly and expressionistic while being representational.  As a studio artist, she has exhibited her art for many years and feels honored to have been included in collaborative shows that contribute to conservation and preservation.

 
Art has been a part of Marilyn’s life for as long as she remembers always making art in some shape or form. She reunited with her love for oil painting in 2010 finding an atelier in Franklin, TN where she was trained in realism, learning the basics of color, value, shape and form.  She continues to hone her skills in workshops with nationally recognized artists.  Her award winning paintings are found in private and corporate collections.
