BiographyI believe art can be a learned process, it is also natural and a matter of what we see, feel and where we allow our hands to dance on the canvas, or our hands dance without our minds controlling them. You can learn the techniques but you cannot learn to tell your mind to be satisfied with the techniques you have learned. When I am with the paintbrush, I always feel like we are dancing together, sometimes harmoniously sometimes against each other. Sometimes we are dancing the Tango, sometimes a Waltz, sometimes we caress each other to a slow romantic dance and sometimes we are in aggressive moments of passion. If there is harmony, it is possible to produce something which shows harmony, if there is no harmony then you may as well put the brush down until you feel it come back. This year I have won International Artist of the Year-Abstract Experimental category, which has made me realise that there are some people that like to dance with me. www.jamespresley.co.uk

James, thanks for taking the time to assist me. I enjoyed reading your comments. Your Kandinsky reference was flattering. It is interesting to me how many people have suggested "Minimal Self". That is one reason I am glad I asked for people's suggestions. I really didn't think anyone would like that piece. Oh, and thanks for the request for an invitation. :) I'll keep you posted. Thanks again James. ~Marianne

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne
