About Marilyn


Artist Statement

When I moved to Seattle from the East Coast and continued to embark on my second career, that of becoming an artist. Essentially self taught I explored and developed my skills as I followed this childhood passion. My art had always focused on expressing aspects of the human experience…personality and relationships.

I started to expand from space and time aspects to memory and connectivity within and between individuals spurred on by my caretaking experience

for family members afflicted with Alzheimer's. I began to revisit family photos.

These images started to appear my paintings.

In 2004 I was fortunate to become Artist in Residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte NC. My work took a leap as I continued to flourish and explore.

My paintings represent a split second in time.

My current work explores the complexity of human personality

and form, generational relationships and human interaction. Stories are told.
