Interests and Personality

BiographyI love the life I live & live the life I love? I am very laid back, I look at life as a journey. I like the unknown for me I find each day a blessed experience and being an artist I look around and see things in a beautiful and challenging way. I work with young offenders doing art workshops and help them paint large murals and mentor them as well..For me art is Visual Conversation, the whole idea of my artwork is to say and express things in a visual way. I donít always have an idea in mind when I first start work on a painting, Itís more like a journey that I am about to embark on. Iím not sure of where I am going or how I will get there and what obstacles I may come across while I am on that journey, thatís the challenge for me as an artist

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
